It is undeniable that competitions are everywhere. Competition inside and outside the business are becoming stiff and for some a neck to neck bottle! So if you’re someone striving to be the best in your business then you must exert all your efforts to be at the top of everyone or on everything you do. This is the same as being an employee. If you want to be the employee of the month then you must also exert all that you can for your superiors to notice your efforts. So how do you exactly become an employee of the month? Here are some simple rules to follow to own the recognition for this coming month.
Know the Rules and Policies
How can you become an employee of the month when you don’t even know the rules and policies to follow? Yes, knowing these is important mainly because this will be your guide to everything that you do inside your workplace. This ensures that you are not violating any rules and regulations and at the same time your superiors will think you are truly adhering to what they are asking.
Go an Extra Mile
When you are being asked to do something, never be satisfied by just doing what you were asked to do. Always go an extra mile. For example, your boss asked you to create a power point report; you should not just create the needed power point for the sake that your boss asked you. You can create 2 power point versions and asked him which one he likes best, as you can see, you are going an extra mile. In case he doesn’t like the 1st one, you still have the 2nd option and you also saved time. This is just a simple gesture yet most managers and leaders appreciate this.
Know When to Seek Help
As an employee, you must know your capabilities. In case you feel like you’re not familiar with what you are doing or you were given a task that you are not confident about, then know when to seek help from others. Asking help from your superiors or colleagues doesn’t not mean you are weak and stupid who can’t handle the task. It only means to say you are brave enough to admit that there is something that you don’t know of and you need help. It is better to ask than pretend to know everything and in the end ruin the project.
Be Loyal to your Company
Loyalty is something that a company treasures. If you are being loyal then for sure all your efforts will be noticed. Loyalty in a business means everything to your boss or superiors. How can you exercise loyalty? Simple, by just making sure that no matter how bad other people thinks of your workplace never ever say negative things about your work or your superiors. If you have nothing good to say then it’s better to keep your mouth shut and be silent. Let your colleagues do the talking. Always put in mind you must be loyal to your work.
