Here are the top three most important jobs of every employee – in this order:
1st = Make a great impression on your boss’ boss
2nd = Get along well with your boss
3rd = Do highly productive work so you are profitable for your employer
First, when you impress your boss’ boss, that reflects well on your boss or immediate supervisor. Also, it means you stand out among employees. Your good impression makes you special and noticed. You do not blend into the woodwork.
Second, when you have a good relationship with your boss, that makes you enjoyable to work with. Bosses like employees with whom they get along well. You make it a pleasure for your boss to have you on the team.
Third, when you are highly productive, you more than pay for your salary. That makes you profitable to your company, which is very important. Being productive and profitable for the organization makes you a valued employee. You are worth having on your employer’s payroll.
