  • Strategies How to be a good Colleague
  • Dependability
    • When you say you can or will do something, then do it.
    • When you are expected to be at work at a certain time, or at a specific location, be there.
    • When employers and co-workers know you are dependable, it makes scheduling and workload distribution much easier.
  • Trustworthiness
    • A reputation of being honest and above reproach in all your dealings within a company will go a long way with any employer.
    • When problems arise involving losses, questionable activities, or other difficult situations, it's worth a lot to know you can be trusted.
  • Confidentiality
    • The employee who passes on confidential or sensitive information is a liability to every employer.
    • There are just some things the public, competitors, and even co-workers have no right or need to know.
  • Manageability
    • There are no perfect bosses, but insubordination, rocking the boat, and passive-aggressive resistance to doing a job the way the boss wants it done will get an employee nowhere - and definitely will not be forgotten.
  • Teamwork
    • Employers usually don't cherish Lone Rangers or employees who compete with co-workers out of greed.
    • An exemplary employee is one who other workers want to work with and spend time with in the workplace.
  • Participation
    • If there's a team or office or department meeting, be there.
    • Everyone, including bosses, knows that meetings are generally the last place a worker wants to be.
    • But the employee who is always there, participates appropriately, and is supportive of the process is going to be appreciated by even the worst of bosses.
