There are a lot of hard-working people who do a great job but still go unnoticed by management. It doesn’t have to be that way for you. If you want to show the management team, you’re ready to take on more responsibility, there are a few things you can do. Here are some best practices in the workplace to get noticed and gain more responsibility at work.
The single best way to demonstrate your interest in more responsibility is to show initiative and take on tasks without being asked. When you see something that needs to get done and you know how to do it, don’t ask permission. Just do it. It’ll go a long way to showing you are reliable and can take action when necessary.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking your manager for more responsibility. In fact, your manager will probably be excited about it. They want to work with people who are interested in doing more, but they don’t know that unless you tell them. Talk to them about what you can do and see what’s available in the office.
Help Co-Workers in Need
If you are done with your work, see who could use a helping hand. Someone under pressure, stressed out, or with a deadline looming is more than happy to take additional help when it comes calling.
Be an Expert
Another way to gain recognition in the workplace is to be to demonstrate your expertise. If you become the person in the office with a set of important tools that everyone knows they can rely on, you will get the notice of management. Whatever it is, whatever you like to do most in the office, be the expert.
Companies like to promote individuals who are part of the corporate community. If you sit quietly by yourself, you may not get noticed or picked for promotions. But if you engage, attend company functions, and participate in activities, you’ll be recognized for more than just your skills and interests.
