A strong work ethic will take you places!

Employers seek it; performance depends on it; satisfaction is derived from it; and career progression is the fruit of it. What is it? A strong work ethic!

By Nene Razaq

Now that you have a job, its so easy to fall into a daily routine or office politics unconsciously. I have seen laziness in offices, loitering, gossiping and such crumble organizations. I have also seen customers very unhappy in banks, hospitals and other service oriented organizations, its very disheartening particularly when you are the business owner and are losing clients based on the incompetence or laxity of your employees. As an employee, It is thus important to inculcate a very strong work ethic, not only does it do your employers a whole lot of good, you stand to benefit more as your career progresses. Work ethic is defined as a value based on hard work and diligence.  This is something that coincides with good morals that the employee uses with his approach to his job or career. Good work ethics would include integrity, responsibility, quality, discipline and even teamwork. If one has good work ethic his conscience will be bothered if he is not doing the right thing in any given situation and it is one of the secrets to a glorious career.

Employers seek it
It’s that intangible quality that star employees exemplify daily in their determination to do the best job possible—regardless of whether someone’s eye is on them or not. Why? They take pride in their work. A job well done fosters within them a sense of personal satisfaction and professional fulfillment. These are the kind of workers employers are eager to hire and promote. When an important project needs to get done, these individuals can be counted on, even if it means working longer hours to do so. A strong work ethic will not only expose you to greater opportunities, it will earn you a reputation of excellence in your profession.

Performance depends on it
Companies that want to hold a position of leadership in their industry know it requires talent with the skills and motivation to consistently produce outstanding results. The caliber of their workforce has everything to do with their performance. So, this becomes the standard that guides their hiring decisions. If you are an individual with a strong work ethic, you embody the qualities that will keep you in demand by top companies throughout your career.

Satisfaction is derived from it
No matter what profession you find yourself in, when you are skilled at what you do and people recognize it, there is a deep sense of satisfaction that wells up within you. It’s the result of knowing you have something valuable to offer and seeing your job—whether it is emptying the trash or closing a business deal—as an important part of the bigger picture. Individuals with a strong work ethic derive greater satisfaction from their work because they are fully engaged in what they are doing every day.

Career progression is the fruit of it
If you desire to advance in your profession, a strong work ethic will keep your career moving upward. Every employer wants an employee with this kind of mentality. Your willingness to work hard and give 150 percent will not go unnoticed. When the opportunity for promotion comes, you will be the one shining brightly at the top of the list.

By demonstrating a strong work ethic in your job, you’ll discover you are more marketable, in demand, satisfied and promotable than those content to watch the clock and collect a paycheck!
