One of the principle work element in IAM Group Limited is work ethics. We value it as much as we value the goals we have implemented ourselves. Every employee should have this to have the company functioning at its peak. Every individual has his own ethic depending on the culture he has been exposed with. IAM Group Ltd. also has our own which we want to share for you to incorporate with your own principles as well.
An employee should be able to stand for what he is and what he says he is. This aspect is particularly important to middle management since they stand in between the boss who expects so much from them and the rank and file who set them as examples. Integrity stretches to all aspects of an employee’s job. An employee with integrity fosters trusting relationships with clients, coworkers and supervisors. Coworkers value the employee’s ability to give honest feedback. Clients trust the employee’s advice. Supervisors rely on the employee’s high moral standards, trusting him not to steal from the company or create problems.
Sense of Responsibility
A strong sense of responsibility affects how an employee works and the amount of work she does. When the employee feels personally responsible for her job performance, she shows up on time, puts in her best effort and completes projects to the best of her ability. It shows how exemplary s/he could be especially to managers and team leaders.
Emphasis on Quality
Some employees do only the bare minimum, just enough to keep their job intact. Employees with a strong work ethic care about the quality of their work. They do their best to produce great work, not merely churn out what is needed. The employee’s commitment to quality improves the company’s overall quality. It is not a matter of task-oriented or result driven, it should be both.
This aspect is somehow similar to the sense of responsibility. To achieve being responsible, you should be disciplined. Take the Japanese, for example. When I attended a meeting in Yokohama, Japan, I was impressed on the punctuality they have and the way they handle situations. When you say American people are punctual, take a look at our Japanese friends.
It takes a certain level of commitment to finish your tasks every day. An employee with good discipline stays focused on his goals and is determined to complete his assignments. These employees show a high level of dedication to the company, always ensuring they do their part.
Sense of Teamwork
Most employees have to work together to meet a company’s objectives. An employee with a high sense of teamwork helps a team meet its goals and deliver quality work. These employees respect their peers and help where they can, making collaborations go smoother.
