Professionalism in the work place for newbies

Professionalism in the Workplace: How to Conduct Yourself on the Job

Professionalism is defined as an individual’s conduct at work. It has nothing to do with either high earnings or having a high level of education, as is usually associated with typical careers like lawyers, Doctors, Engineers etc. who are often called professionals, who ironically sometimes display very little professionalism.

Dos and Don’ts of professionalism:

  • Make It a Priority to Be on Time

When you arrive late for work or meetings, it gives your boss and co-workers the impression that you don’t care about your job. It’s like saying you don’t value their time.

  • Don’t Be a Grump

Leave your bad mood at the door when you come to work. I say wear your work clothes to work and wear your house clothes at home.

  • Dress Appropriately

Choose the type of clothing your employer requires. If there isn’t a dress code, pick attire that is the norm for your place of employment.

Watch Your Mouth

Swearing, cursing, or cussing—whatever you call it—has no place in most workplaces.

  • Offer Assistance to Your Colleagues

A true professional is willing to help their co-workers when they are overburdened or facing a challenge at work. They aren’t afraid to share knowledge, opinions, or simply an extra pair of hands.

  • Don’t Gossip

While you may be tempted to tell your cubicle neighbours what you heard about Suzy or Sam down in accounting, gossiping makes you look like a middle school student.
