is a guiding philosophy, so workplace ethics is a guiding philosophy in the
workplace. There are principles of
conduct that employees need to consider while at work. Here’s a list of dos and don’ts that one has
to keep in mind to keep a good status and image at work.
punctual – Being on time at work and in meetings is a sign of professionalism
as well as respect to other people’s time.
There are schedules that need to be followed and policies that need to
be implemented when it comes to time management. Discipline is the key to being punctual at
professionally – Putting on neat clothes and dressing for success shows that
you mean business. Putting an extra
effort to look good and clean is a sure way to make people take you
seriously. Follow the organization’s
dress code at all times and you’ll never go wrong.
helpful – Lending a helping hand to a co-worker in need is a great way to help
not just a co-worker but also the whole company. Helping someone shows that you are not a
selfish person rather a thoughtful person that one can depend on. Being helpful doesn’t only benefit the
co-worker you helped, but also the company by helping everyone to be
productive. It also benefits you as
people get to know you as a team player.
respectful – Respecting others doesn’t mean that you only respect your bosses,
but also respecting your colleagues and even your subordinates. Respecting other people is not confined
within the higher ranks but should be practiced for all levels of people in the
organization. A respectful person also
commands respect from others.
positive – Staying positive amidst challenges and pressures at work is a good
way to keep yourself on track. Being
positive keeps you focused on your goal.
You are not being sidetracked by some setbacks that you encounter.
engage in office politics – Stay away from people that cause division and
friction. Do your best in whatever you
do and expect that you’ll get the promotion and recognition you deserve without
courting favor from the bosses.
entertain gossips – Reject any form of gossips in the office. Engaging in gossips will affect your
productivity as time is wasted while you gossip. It also contradicts to being respectful and
staying positive in the workplace.
Gossiping about others is a way of disrespecting them. Gossip as always have never been a positive
experience rather it spreads negativity.
cultivate personal emotions at work – Some people, especially the bosses, may
be demanding and stressful to work with but they are not doing it to personally
hurt you or put you down. Just like you,
they are just doing their work and they are also being pressured and stressed
by their own bosses and other factors.
Just focus on your work and keep your emotions at bay.
are other dos and don’ts to remember in the workplace. The important thing is to go back to the
basics. Know why are you working in the
first place. This will keep you focused
and keep you from all the distractions.
