When a company is acquired or restructures and layoffs are announced, employees who have consistently demonstrated their value are usually on the “must-keep” list.
“Value is achieved by doing more than showing up for work on time with a good attitude and work habits.“John Self
Value is achieved by doing more than showing up for work on time with a good attitude and work habits.
Here are four steps you can take to be the kind of employee a company wants to keep:
- Build a relationship with a respected executive who will mentor and champion your performance. Being valuable requires being recognized.
- Consistently achieve or exceed your performance targets for operations, finance, and satisfaction.
- Volunteer for special projects, including those with higher risk that no one wants.
- Take the initiative. Think outside the box to improve processes that will benefit your operations.
In a period of increasing disruption and change, being valuable is smart career management.
