Tip 1 for Respect, Productivity & Notice at Work: Be on Time or Early

by | Jan 7, 2019

If one of your goals of 2019 is better your productivity and respect in the workplace then you should begin by establishing a reputation as someone who is always on time or early. Punctuality is the first of Shana Lebowitz’s steps noted in her recent article on the ‘11 things you can do today to be more respected, productive, and impressive at work.’

 

In this article, Lebowitz observes that, “research from the Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington suggests that employees who get into the office early are generally perceived by their managers as more conscientious and receive higher performance ratings than employees who arrive later.” She goes on to note that staying late does not garner the same perceptions from managers.  

 

You may think it’s only 5 or 10 minutes from time to time, but even that can single you out in the eyes of coworkers. On time is actually late in the eyes of many as well.
