Business Ethics: Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Do you think you have strong business ethics? If you’re like most people, you probably think you do.

But have you ever been put to the test?

Have you caught your boss telling a lie?

Found a discrepancy in the books of your biggest client?

Overheard an associate promise a service your firm couldn’t possibly deliver?

Saint Leo University Assistant Professor Joe Little, who teaches ethics as part of a course in business law, says it’s not what you learn in the classroom that determines your ethics; it’s what you do when confronted with a decision.

“Ethics depends on what you choose to do,” he says.

Ethics purposely integrated

At Saint Leos’ Donald R. Tapia School of Business, ethics is such an important topic it’s purposely integrated into every course offered through both on-ground and online business degree programs. In fact, ethics is part of the core curriculum across all disciplines and integrity – in word and deed – is one of the university’s core values.

“Saint Leo takes it to the nth degree,” says Little, a practicing attorney for more than 20 years. “We really emphasize, particularly with professionals, that your actions and reputation will follow you.”

Little takes a theoretical approach to the study of business ethics. His lessons, including those aimed at students earning an online business degree, focus on three main theories as a framework for judging right or wrong decisions.

One theory is that a corporation’s job is to make money, and as long as the corporation is not deceptive, it has a responsibility to make as much money as it can. This theory, attributed to American economist Milton Friedman, is known as the moral minimum theory, is “absolutely not in vogue anymore,” according to Little.

Another – which says that every action should be judged based on how it would sound to others if it appeared on the front page of the newspaper – is a “prescription for doing the right thing,” says Little. Known as the transparency theory, it is attributed to American business magnate Warren Buffett.

Taking into consideration the concerns of any parties that can be affected by a decision, including employees, the community and customers, as well as investors, is the premise for the third theory – the stakeholder theory.

We talked with Little about ethics and education, and here’s what he had to say.

Why are ethics so important in business today? Isn’t ethics purely a matter of character? Can a business really be successful and ethical? How did you become an ethics educator? Is teaching ethics something new?

Little: Every modern business textbook today has chapters on ethics – it’s built in. Sometimes the topic is concrete, such as in the field of law, where professionals are held accountable to a code of ethics.

How do you teach a person business ethics?

Little: It has to be directed at an action. A student has to be confronted with a decision to be made for it to make sense. For example: What does a junior accounting fraud investigator do when he becomes aware that a senior partner has juggled the numbers? With a question, the student becomes the moral agent. I don’t think you can teach it any other way.

Can you give some examples of ethical dilemmas in business?

Little: One example is when a forensic accountant becomes aware of bad numbers. The accountant has a moral obligation to track it down – whether it’s a firm the accountant is auditing or the accountant’s own firm. You can’t turn a blind eye.

In marketing, as another example, there’s a fine line between bolstering a product and being deceitful. We teach students that being deceitful will definitely come back to haunt them.

How does Saint Leo integrate ethics into its online business curriculum?

Little: All exercises or projects always have an ethical aspect as part of the evaluation. Also, internships are monitored very closely and students are asked directly if they had to make a tough choice, and if they did how they dealt with it.

Ethics is purposely integrated throughout the core curriculum. You can’t teach ethics in the abstract; you have to flesh it out and have situations to apply it to.

How does the emphasis on ethics in Saint Leo’s School of Business reflect the university’s core values?

Little: It’s unavoidable. Anyone who walks into the School of Business will see the university’s core values displayed in the lobby, and companies offering internships are told up front that this is what we try to foster.

Are there examples you use with your students of particularly unscrupulous companies? Are you seeing a shift in the market and in the attitudes of students with regard to ethics?

8 Ways To Develop More Effective Ethics Training For Employees

What does it mean to have an ethical workplace? An ethical workplace has well-established codes of professional and personal conduct that not only stay in compliance with all regulations and laws that govern your business, but also moral codes of conduct that include honesty, diversity, compassion, and good citizenship. Both of these aspects provide two main functions for your business.

1. Protects Your Company’s Bottom Line

Unethical behavior impacts profits when multi-million dollar fines are levied on unethical corporations.

This same behavior can cost the company in terms of lower stock prices, fewer customers, and inability to do business with those who don’t trust you.

2. Makes Your Company A Great Place To Work

On the other hand, employee ethics training makes a company a great place to work. Consider Patagonia [1], with their mission statement: “Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.”

Steps Involved In Developing An Ethics Training Program For Employees

Ethics training keeps your company profitable and helps employees make consistently good decisions in service to their colleagues, their customers, and themselves. However, not just any ethics training course will do. Developing an ethics training program for employees incorporates the following eight steps.

1. Stand For Something (Or Watch Employees Fall For Anything)

If you are a new company or are new to the idea of articulating your company’s ethics, it can be valuable to have a company-wide conversation that gets to the heart of your company culture. It’s hard to offer ethics training for employees when you are not clear what your company stands for.

Start your employee ethics training by either developing a code of conduct for your company or making sure employees are clear on the one that already exists. Do not assume that even your most senior employees know what it is.

2. Identify The Different Types Of Ethical Training You Can Include

All quality training begins with a training needs analysis. In the case of ethics training for employees, you might consider focusing on one or more of the following areas:

Ethical conduct, both in and out of the office

Customer privacy and data protection

Company code of ethics

Common ethical dilemmas

Company culture

Customer relations

Regulatory and compliance training

Diversity training

Keep in mind, too, that ethics training is not a “one and done” solution to a single concrete issue. The goal of different types of ethics training is to teach employees to make good decisions that are consistent with your company’s culture. This may need to be reinforced in a variety of situations over time as your industry changes.

3. Train Employees Where They Are

You know what your employees need, and it’s not a monthly lecture on how to be a good person. You hired them. Chances are good that your employees are already quality humans. So train those humans in the way they want to be trained.

While it’s sometimes good to have a round-table discussion about what ethical behavior is and to role-play tricky situations, sometimes employees just need a quick reminder on a regulation update or changes to laws on compliance. Consider microlearning options to deliver this type of information, just in time and where they need it.

4. Get Your Leadership Involved

Let’s be honest. If your leadership isn’t 100% behind ethics trainings for employees, they may be sending the message that ethics are not very important.

Ethical leaders are committed to working with ethical employees. Chances are good they have some ideas about what they’d like to focus on. Get leadership involved and committed from the very beginning.

5. Consider Incentives

New research suggests that incentives for employees work. Consider offering gift cards, afternoons off, or other small bonuses for employees who go above and beyond and put their training into action.

6. Create Common Goals And Identity

Part of articulating your ethical company culture and getting leadership involved is the journey to creating common goals and a unified company identity. Get really clear about who your company is and what it stands for. It worked for Patagonia, and on the surface they are just selling clothes.

Make your mission statement the driving force behind everything you do and every decision you make. It can be as simple as being the company that always does the right thing, or the one that won’t rest until the customer is satisfied.

7. Make It Fun

We get it. Employee trainings of any kind can be a bit of a slog, and employee pushback can be intense. There are ways to make things more fun, though, even when it comes to serious discussions.

Even though ethics are a serious business, gamification and role-playing can help lighten the mood a bit, or at least get employees thinking in a different way.

8. But, Take It Seriously

Sure, it’s easy to make fun of ethics training for employees – seems like everyone has a ready joke at hand.

However, if your goal is for employees to represent your company with respect and consideration, functioning as a team where everyone is appreciated, supported, and heard, you need to take this type of training seriously. Give it the time, space, and resources it needs to be done well.

Whether you need a nudge in the right direction or a complete overhaul of your current ethics training, get started developing your ethics training program today!References

10 Beautiful Japanese Words To Add To Your Vocabulary List

A deep love for books that dips into the philosophical.

Daydreams and nostalgia.

Words have the power to evoke all those feelings.

And in Japanese, there are words for all the fleeting feelings we described above-and more.

If you’re learning Japanese, you probably don’t need to be told that it’s a beautiful language. You already know.

Instead, we’d like to introduce you to a collection of beautiful Japanese words that we love, and you’re sure to enjoy too.

But first, what exactly makes a word “beautiful”?

What Makes a Japanese Word Beautiful?

What makes one word more beautiful than another? Here are a few factors that turn a Japanese word from a tool for communication into a work of art:

The way it rolls off the tongue.

English has its own set of words that are just pleasant to say. Nefarious. Equinox. Supine. Something about certain words can make one feel tingly right down to the bone.

Some Japanese words have a similar effect, even if you’re not a native speaker.

Aesthetically pleasing kana.

Japanese kanji, hiragana and katakana are incredibly beautiful alphabets to read and write. But some kana for particular words are especially beautiful-almost like an elegant drawing.

A unique and beautiful meaning not commonly found in the English language.

English can sometimes be a pretty limiting language. For example, our word for “love” is pretty much just “love.” In Hebrew, though, there are many other words for different types of love, such as lustful love, love of God, platonic love, etc.

Similarly, Japanese has words for things that you’ll never find in the English language, which is pretty fascinating and beautiful in itself!

Add these beautiful words to your vocabulary, use them in everyday conversation or simply keep them close to your heart as a reminder of the beauty of the Japanese language.

Better yet, add them to a literal vocabulary list on FluentU.

Definition: A word that sounds sweet and pleasant to the ear.

Ironically, our first beautiful Japanese word on this list can be used to describe beautiful Japanese words.

This expression is often used when someone says a word that’s audibly beautiful, but sometimes couples will use it when one of them compliments the other.

Example sentences:

Person 1: 私の名前は日光です。(わたし の なまえ は にっこう です。) Person 1: My name is Sunshine.

Definition: The act of buying too many books and never reading them.

Many of us are guilty of this bad habit, but unfortunately, there’s no word for it in the English language.

While the meaning of this Japanese word is pretty unique, its sound is also beautiful: It rolls off the tongue and is just very pleasant to say out loud. Try it!

Example sentence:

Definition: A cold fragrant wind that arrives shortly before wintertime.

In most places around the world, autumn is chilly. However, towards the end of October or even early November in Japan, there’s a cold, brisk and bitter wind that signals the beginning of colder weather.

If you’re outside at just the right moment to feel it, you’ll know that winter is on the way. This Japanese word beautifully represents the end of a season. Although this kind of wind occurs in many parts of the United States, there’s no word for it in English.

Example sentence:

Definition: A mother who always relentlessly forces to her child towards academic achievement.

Maybe this isn’t the most beautiful word in the Japanese language, but it’s certainly a unique-and culturally relevant-term.

Depending on who you talk to, 教育ママ could be a very endearing and comedic term or a downright disastrous one.

In English, this word roughly translates to “educational mother.” This is typically an overbearing, obsessively supportive mother in Japan. An expression that’s close in meaning is “helicopter parent,” though the connotation is a bit different.

These moms are often stereotyped as air-headed but endearing women who tend to embarrass their kids by always bringing them to school, attending teacher conferences religiously, poking into parties to serve snacks, etc.

This term can also be an insult, as some of these mothers aren’t very well-meaning but rather are attempting to achieve financial and academic success vicariously through their children. Through the last decade, sometimes the 教育ママ are blamed for social phobias in young people.

Example sentence:

Definition: “I will always protect you.”

This term is typically said by a romantic partner to their beloved.

You wouldn’t throw this out to just anybody. Reserve it for a tender moment between yourself and someone you’ve been dating for a while.

Example sentence:

Definition: A wise and beautiful phrase that means “It just can’t be helped.”

When life gets rough and we blame ourselves for how things have ended up, remember this very smart and very true phrase often used by Japanese people.

The phrase describes the unpredictability of life and lack of control human beings really have in the grand scheme of things. People die, we lose friends, breakups happen, jobs are lost, economies crumble.

Remember that sometimes, things just can’t be helped.

Example sentences:

Person 1: 最近、彼は失業したんだよ。(さいきん、かれ は しつぎょう したんだ よ。) Person 1: He lost his job recently.

Person 2: しょうがないよ。 Person 2: It can’t be helped.

Definition: To daydream longingly.

When someone’s staring out a window, paying no attention to the world, lost in their own thoughts-that’s ぼけっと.

It can be an endearing term or an annoying one, especially when a student isn’t paying attention to their teacher.

Example sentence:

ぼけっとしないで! Quit your daydreaming!

Definition: This essentially means “nostalgia,” but particularly nostalgia that occurs when something triggers memories from a specific season.

The term roughly translates to “seasonal tradition.” If the smell or sight of something reminds you of a particular season, it’s a 風物詩 moment.

Example sentence:

Definition: The smell of rain before it begins to fall.

It’s worth noting that this is actually a borrowed word from English. “Petrichor” is the English word for the smell of rain and this Japanese word is a katakana borrowed from it.

Still, in either language, it’s a beautiful and pleasant thing you’ve probably experienced (unless you’re one of the 10% who can’t smell it -in which case, we’re so sorry!).

Example sentences:

Person 1: いい香り だ。(いい かおり だ。) Person 1: What a lovely aroma.

Definition: Ineffable, impossible. It can also mean “too grand or powerful to describe in words.”

This term is usually used for something that’s totally impossible and unfeasible.

It can also be used to describe the grandness and indescribable nature of space, Earth, the heavens or anything that human beings can’t really grasp.

Example sentence:

Are you entranced by these beautiful Japanese words? Remember, the more words you know, the closer to fluent you’ll become!

7 Things You Should Do To Demonstrate A Strong Work Ethic To Your Employer

Something about how you must have a “strong work ethic”, or something along those lines.

And then, once you are already part of the company or organization, they’d go on and on about how all employees must have a good work ethic so they can contribute to the achievement of the organization’s goals.

But what is work ethic, really? Is it a personal trait that must be possessed by individuals? Or is it a standard of behavior that everyone should follow so they can actually be of use to the organization?


Let’s start off with defining work ethic. There are so many definitions attached to the phrase. If we’re going to use a simple definition for work ethic, we could go with the one describing it as a set of moral principles that an employee uses in the performance of his job.

Another business definition describes work ethic as “the belief in the moral benefit and importance of work and its inherent ability to strengthen character.”

Basically, work ethic can refer to how you feel about your job or career, so it covers your attitude and behavior. It also pertains to how you do your job, or the responsibilities that come attached with it. The level of respect you show your co-workers and people you come into contact with at work, and how you communicate and interact with them, also defines your work ethic.

From that definition, we can also surmise that work ethic is also used to refer to key characteristics that you should have, and they include honesty, integrity, humility and accountability, among others. These traits or characteristics will dictate how you will react or do in a certain situation, or when you are faced with a particular circumstance. How you respond will reveal the kind of work ethic that you have.

Obviously, work ethic is important in defining your identity. It becomes part of who you are, and there is no doubt that a huge part of how people will view and know you will come from what they perceive to be your work ethic.

From the point of view of the organization, it will be to its benefit to have employees with solid work ethics, because their traits and personalities will contribute to the attainment of the vision and goals of the organization.

Work ethic, on its own, isn’t going to be of any use to any organizational setup, though. If you want to become effective as a contributing member of the organization, then you should have a good and strong work ethic. Then, and only then, can you hope to be viewed and recognized favorably by your employer.


But when can you describe your work ethic to be good and strong? Several authorities named key factors, and we’ll try to name all the elements that serve as a solid foundation for a strong work ethic.


Integrity should permeate every aspect of your job, from how you deal with your clients to how you treat your co-workers and your superiors. It means doing the right things, at all times, even if no one is watching, much less your boss. Its greatest impact is seen in your relationships with the people around you, which is why integrity is seen as one of the most important ingredients of Trust.

According to Robert Shaw, you can earn a certain level of trust if you are able to achieve results while demonstrating concern for others and acting with integrity the whole time. Hence, the formula:

Results + Integrity + Concern = Level of Trust

Acting with integrity, in this context, also means behaving in a consistent manner. For example, if you are part of a team, your behavior should be in tune with everyone, in accordance with a clear set of guidelines in working together toward a clear purpose.

Emphasis on Quality of Work

If you show dedication and commitment to coming up with very good results in your work, then your work ethic will definitely shine. While some employees do only the barest minimum, or what is expected of them, there are those who go beyond that.

They do more, they perform better, and they definitely go the extra mile to come up with results that surpass expectations. Clearly, these employees are those who belong to the group with a solid work ethic.


The word “professionalism” is often seen as something that is too broad or wide in scope, covering everything from your appearance to how you conduct yourself in the presence of other people.

It is so broad and seemingly all-encompassing that many even go so far as to say that professionalism equates having a solid work ethic.


Work ethic is something that emanates from within. You can tell an employee to do this and that, be like this and like that, over and over, but if they do not have enough discipline to adhere to the rules and follow through with their performance, then there is no way that they can become the productive employees that the company wants.

Discipline involves focus, dedication and determination on your part to do what you should.

Sense of Responsibility

The moment you became part of the organization and assigned tasks and duties, you have a responsibility that you must fulfill. If you have a strong work ethic, you will be concerned with ensuring that you are able to fulfill your duties and responsibilities. You will also feel inclined to do your best if you want to get the best results.

Sense of Teamwork

As an employee, you are part of an organization. You are simply one part of a whole, which means you have to work with other people. If you are unable to do so, this will put your work ethic into question.

Work ethic is also continuously shaped by relationships, specifically on how you are able to handle them in achieving goals, whether shared or individual.


It is one thing to proudly declare that you have a strong work ethic to your boss, but it is another totally different thing to convince him that you really do. In fact, bosses are not inclined to take such claims at face value, instead wanting you to convince them with actions and not just words.

So what are the things that you can do in order to convince your employer that you have a strong work ethic as you claim?

1. Put the company first.

Trying to demonstrate a good work ethic if you don’t actually care about the company will be acting, and no matter how good of an actor you are, it won’t be long before you are discovered. You need to actually have the good work ethic before you try to show it to the world.

And this starts with putting the company first in your thoughts and actions. Once this is done, half the battle is won.

2. Manage your time wisely.

Time management is not limited to being on time for work and meeting deadlines. It actually involves more than that.

Be punctual. They say that punctuality is one of the first indicators of professionalism. Brett and Kate McKay pointed out several reasons why punctuality is very important. Important points were made on how punctuality strengthens and reveals your integrity while also demonstrating your level of discipline, humility and dependability. It is also one way to show your respect for others, while allowing you to build your self-confidence and always put your best foot forward. For many managers and supervisors, lack of punctuality is a deal-breaker. If a new employee is habitually tardy in coming to work, this is likely to drive them to have a low opinion of the capabilities of that employee to continue working in the company.

Maintain a good attendance record. It’s not just your punctuality and how you observe work hours that will be closely looked into. A high rate of absenteeism certainly does not bode well, even if it is unintentional or there are unavoidable circumstances, such as if you are frequently ill that you have to take days off from work. If this is the case, it is important to take up the matter with your superiors in order for both parties to come up with a solution that will benefit everyone. If there are truly unavoidable circumstances causing you to miss work, bringing it up before you are confronted shows that indeed you are concerned about the company and it makes your bosses more open to suggestions that you might have. An example would be allowing you to work remotely from home. Your bosses will know if you are taking a day off work to avoid performing a particularly rigorous or complicated task. This will not reflect positively on you, and any chance you might have of getting a raise or a promotion won’t look too good.

Observe deadlines. Between an employee who barely beats the deadline, rushing at the eleventh hour to get things done and finishing his task just as the clock hits 12, so to speak, and an employee who finishes his task well ahead of time, without any rushing and stressing out, who will be more favorable in the eyes of the supervisor? Obviously, it is the second employee.

If you are able to finish your task ahead of time, that means you are able to manage your time wisely. That will also give you ample time to make any adjustments, if necessary, since there is still some time left before the actual deadline. Better yet, you should take the initiative to set your own deadlines.

3. Be honest.

Although the phrase may seem a bit of a cliché nowadays, there is still truth to the adage “Honesty is the best policy”. The esteemed Warren Buffet said it best when he cited three qualities to look for when hiring new people: integrity, intelligence and energy. There is no way that a person can hide his dishonesty forever. Sooner or later, it will manifest itself, and that will not do your work ethic any favors.

The biggest problem that a dishonest employee will encounter is the lack or absence of trust from other people. Therefore, if you want to go far in your career, or go up the hierarchy in the organization, then you should make it a point to be honest in your dealings so that you can be trusted by your seniors and fellow colleagues.

Since we are on the topic of honesty, other things that you can do are:

Give honest feedback. This shows that you are capable of objectivity. Managers, co-workers and even clients will value you more if you show that you are able to provide honest feedback. Sure, this may be a sensitive area, which is why you have to take extra care on your delivery of your feedback. If you are able to get your message across without openly offending anyone and igniting hostilities, then that will prove even further the strength of your work ethic.

Own up to your mistakes. If you did something wrong, it is best to man up and own up to it, instead of denying all blame and, worse, pinning it on other people. This is a sign that you are unable and unwilling to take responsibility, a sure sign that your work ethic is less than solid.

4. Maintain a balanced and consistent performance in performing your work.

An employee with a strong work ethic is a productive employee. This productivity is seen in the pace of work and your persistence in maintaining that pace. If you can work at a fast pace, that means you’ll be able to accomplish more within the limited time that you are given. You are not the type to give up just because you are exhausted or you suddenly feel lazy. You do not quit until you have completed what you have started.

As an employee or worker, your main concern is to perform your core functions, or the tasks and duties that are in your job description. Therefore, that is the first thing that you should focus on. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense if you score high in punctuality and have a perfect attendance record, but you’re only churning out what is needed, instead of producing great work.

Do quality work. Employers want employees who care about the quality of the work that they churn out, going a step above and beyond the minimum of expectations with regard to the quality of their work. An employee who is committed to quality in his own work is an employee worth keeping because, at the end of the day, his work will form part of the overall quality of the output of the organization.

Be organized. A disorganized employee is seen as someone who may have trouble meeting deadlines and producing quality work. It’s similar to how your personality is often judged by your personal hygiene. If you have dirty nails or unkempt hair, you’d be immediately judged – especially by those you are meeting for the first time – to have problems keeping things together. It’s the same thing if you are disorganized, say, in how you maintain your work area. If you are working with tools and machines, leaving them lying around may even result to accidents and injuries. Being organized shows how you are able to prioritize, and will also provide an indication of how you can contribute to the achievement of the goals and objectives of the company.

Be consistent. You have to continue working at your peak, getting the best results, even when no one is watching. Some employees, in their desire to impress their bosses, will only visibly put in more work if they know they are being watched. This is not how you demonstrate a strong work ethic. On the contrary, it will only paint you as pretentious, which is one of the worst things that can taint your work ethic.

It is “do, not say”, and “act, not tell”. At the end of the day, it is your output and your work that will speak the loudest volume about your work ethic. Show great results, and you’ll be seen as someone with a great work ethic.

5. Always show respect.

Respectfulness is, sadly, becoming more of a rare commodity these days. But it remains to be one of the traits that supervisors are looking for to indicate whether an employee has a strong work ethic or not.

Using proper etiquette is basic for humans, which is why it is valued greatly in the workplace. Even a slightest shift away from proper etiquette can potentially destroy a relationship that has been cultivated and nurtured for a very long time.

What if you are under too much pressure? Does that not give you a bit of a leeway, so you can use it as an excuse to be rude or let your temper fly?

In the workplace, there should be no excuse to be disrespectful to other people, whether it is with a peer or a subordinate. Tight deadlines? Impossible demands from impossible clients? They’re part and parcel of a regular “day at the workplace”. Therefore, you should not let your temper get the better of you.

Stay calm and poised. Good and rational decisions are harder to come by if anger is clouding your judgment. If you show that you are frazzled, this will also fluster the others, and soon you’ll be dealing with a roomful of panicking and co-workers.

Be diplomatic. Choose your words carefully, and be careful not to offend others. Even a misplaced word here and there can potentially lead to a blowout, which you’d definitely want to avoid as much as possible.

Listen to others’ opinions. Even if you might not 100% agree with them in the end, giving them time to voice out their opinions and listening to them is already a sign of respect. Besides, you may just find solutions in those opinions.

Avoid gossiping and harmful talk about, and against, others. Idle chit-chat is unavoidable at the workplace, but there is a difference between chatting idly about this and that, and gossiping maliciously about other people. This can potentially blow up and lead to conflicts and even bigger problems. Negative talks will definitely affect teamwork if it’s not avoided.

Show fair treatment to others. If you are in a supervisory position, you might not be aware that you are favoring one worker over the others. If you are dealing with clients, you might be showing a bias toward one client while acting passively toward others. This inequity is an indication that you may have a skewed judgment, especially when it comes to dealing with bigger issues.

Demonstrate grace under pressure, and you can definitely convince your boss that you have a work ethic strong enough to merit further notice during promotions to higher positions.

6. Follow the rules.

If you can’t follow even one simple rule, such as keeping your work area neat and orderly, or properly clocking in when you get to work, your boss is likely to take that as a sign that you’d find it even more difficult to keep the rules that do matter.

How can you show that you are a law-abiding employee?

Be aware of company policies. There’s bound to be an employee handbook or company manual that covers policies, rules and regulations that employees must abide by. Make it a point to read through it and know the finer points, because you certainly cannot argue ignorance if, at some point, you are called out for violating a company rule. Making the effort to learn about these policies and regulations will also put you in a positive light. Your boss will see this as a sign of commitment on your part about wanting to do good in your work while sticking to the rules.

Follow the dress code. This is another key characteristic of professionalism. Appearance may not be all that matters in the workplace, but it DOES matter to a certain extent, regardless of the actual work that you do. Even laborers and those who are doing manual labor have a prescribed dress code that they must adhere to, not just for purposes of safety at the workplace, but also as a member of the organization. As employees and workers, they are still representatives of the organization, and if you are able to dress properly, this will reflect positively to the organization.

7. Work with others.

No matter how much you think you are better at working alone, or that you can provide more and better results if you work by yourself, the very nature of being an employee of a company means that you are merely one of the cogs in a larger machine. Therefore, you have to work with the other employees.

Cooperate. Cooperation is very important. Even if you have personal differences in opinion with a co-worker, or you do not see eye to eye about a matter entirely separate from work, you should still be able to cooperate and work together with him. Set aside those differences, at least for the time being. Your boss will appreciate you more if you are able to prove that you can separate the personal from work and still be able to cooperate with others.

Socialize. Yes, you read that right. Socialization is also very important. You can’t be all work and serious talk all the time. Once in a while, you have to take a step back, relax, and socialize with your co-workers. This is one way to cultivate your social skills while strengthening your relationship with the other employees or members of the team.

8. Stay fit and healthy.

Believe it or not, being sound and healthy in mind and body also contributes to your work ethic. Let me explain why.

If you are healthy, you’ll be able to think more clearly, so you can make better decisions and exercise better judgment when doing your work. Being healthy also ensures that you won’t have a problem with your attendance record. You’d be able to report to work on time, and absenteeism won’t be an issue.

In the same manner, if you are fit and healthy, you won’t have problems socializing with your co-workers. You will also be in a positive mood, so tempers and frustrations will not get in the way.

Therefore, make it a point to exercise regularly. Eat your meals properly and maintain a balanced diet. Get out for some air once in a while. If you have vacation days, make the most of them, so you can rest your mind and body. If you’re the type to enjoy the great outdoors and commune with nature, make it a point to do that whenever you have the opportunity to do so. This will refresh and strengthen you for when you go back to work and carry on with your tasks and responsibilities.

If you think about it, these things are not all that difficult to do. In fact, they are relatively easy. It is the execution that most people find complicated. Still, it is a fact that building and maintaining a strong work ethic is not a walk in the park. It takes a lot for a person to prove that he has one, but if you are committed and dedicated enough, then you will no doubt be able to convince your bosses that your work ethic is one of the things that make you an asset of the company.
