While many people think about exercising more or dieting as part of their New Year's resolutions, you might be looking for one that's appropriate for your professional life. Here are three pledges for the new year that will be keys to success in your workplace.
Hard work is important on the job, but it will only get you so far. In order to achieve success by climbing the corporate ladder, you'll need to network with key people around your workplace. Grab lunch with your manager or pop into your human resources office to build beneficial relationships with your coworkers.
Looking the part
Dress for the job you want, not the job you have – that's how the saying goes. If you're looking to upgrade your career, consider picking up a new wardrobe that is sure to impress the higherups in your office. Dressing well isn't a guarantee of a promotion or raise, but it will certainly tip the scales in your favor.
Do you generally keep your head down during meetings? Becoming a more active participant in important workplace discussions can cement your role as a team leader and valuable member of the staff. This recognition will certainly be of help when you apply for a promotion down the road.
