HOW TO RISE ABOVE THE WORK PACK

Being good at your job does not always mean you will be indispensable. While having skill and talent is essential in working your way up the corporate ladder, the art of being approachable is also key.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, where you stand in terms of staff relationships is just as important as how well you do your job. Ensuring you are a valued member of the team means you need to be memorable and yet appear to be part of the furniture – keeping yourself locked to your desk will put you at risk of becoming disposable.

Michael Shevers, area manager at Drake Recruitment Services, believes that by helping others, you help yourself. A manager wants to see you being proactive, so by asking staff if they need help on a task shows you are going above and beyond to see success in the business.

Throw ideas out when you can, although don’t overdo it. Keep an eye out for opportunities where the company could save money or a way to improve customer service, and you’ll have the management eating out of the palm of your hand.

If you receive positive feedback from a client, share it with the management. Some managers will forward this to other staff in a bid to motivate, leaving you in the mind of other workers.
