Professionalism is Key
We have heard many times from our
clients that there is a lack of professionalism in today's employment
force. From frequent absenteeism to substandard attire to simple
attitude, there are numerous pitfalls to navigate around. However,
daily opportunity exists to stand out as a serious professional,
regardless of your position title.
By definition, professionalism
is a way of acting within any given business situation, and there
are many ways to achieve this standard.
Items to Incorporate
- Business attire. Most stores
have "Coordinates" sections. Choose most (if not all)
of your business clothing from these sections, as they represent
today's corporate standard. It is simple to personalize your style
with well-chosen accessories.
- Ethics. It is vitally important
to continually evaluate the motives behind your actions.
- Attitude. It is widely
recognized that a positive, "can-do" attitude is a sure
sign of a serious, productive employee.
Items to Avoid
- Inappropriate language. Cursing
is never acceptable and may well offend your manager or coworkers.
- Lateness or excessive absenteeism.
Both give the impression that your employment is not a high priority
- Personal tasks. Simply balancing
your checkbook or checking your personal email can be construed
as misuse of company time.
