Habits of a Good Employee
Here are ------ things that one need to following in all of his jobs.
1. Be Punctual:
This is the first thing that you need to follow; this is the most important skill that one needs to polish by following it daily. Being punctual is one implied role or policy of any organization and it is considered at the time of appraisal too.
2. Be Honest:
Learn and do not be afraid of owing your errors, deficiencies and mistakes. New comers are highly likely to make mistakes because they have no idea of the practical work environment.
Once you tell your senior that your take the responsibility of an error, then he may sit with you to teach you of doing things the right way. Lies are not effective in long term plus the job world is a very small where words travel fast and liar is not how you want to be known.
3. Be a team worker:
Every organization can be observed to be divided in to many teams (departments) with different goals e.g. finance, marketing, operations etc. The teams are further divided in to branches to teams with versatile roles.
Since no one person can run the department alone by doing all the tasks especially in a specified time frame that is why there are teams formed.
As a team member it is necessary to do good job and teach others to do a great job and the time passes by the understanding level grows and one enjoys working with his team.
Involving other colleagues and promoting team work help you to succeed through out your career.
4. Avoid Gossiping / Politics / Drama:
In office life, no one likes every one thus every work place has a fair share of gossip, politics and drama. Practice that you do not end up being a part of it, maintain your distance from such situations. Just listen to all and do not comment.
You do not want to be in a dilemma, as you may end up in alienating from co-workers or mess up with the management.
5. Doing things at the optimum:
Doing every task to the best of your abilities; sounds like a typical advice but it is one of the trusted statements. Your first job is the first chance to show what you have got and doing your best all the time makes increases your value every time.
Give the job a 100% in your efforts and that will make you feel good about it in the end of the day.
