How to Impress Your Boss - Be Punctual

Guest Author - Dianne Walker

When do you need to impress your boss? Considering they stand between you, your raise and promotions - the correct answer is all the time. Impressing your boss does not mean doing back flips through the office or bringing them Starbucks coffee every day. An action as simple as arriving to work on time will put you ahead of the game. Impressing with punctuality is a great way to start.

Punctuality is more then just arriving on time, even though that does help. Be at your desk on time and prepared to work. Does this scenario sound familiar? You rush into the office at exactly 8:00 a.m. and sit at your desk. You’re not settled yet, though. First, you need to distribute your personal belongings. Your cell phone needs to be plugged into a charger. Your IPOD needs to be hooked up so you can listen to music. Next, you need to go grab the first cup of morning coffee. You chat with your co-workers for at least five to ten minutes about the latest episode of xyz. You finally settle in and turn on your computer to start work around 8:30 or 8:45.

Even if your boss does not comment, they will definitely notice. Their displeasure may manifest itself in a passive-aggressive manner. Their displeasure often results in lower salary increases and lack of promotion.

Want to know one simple move to impress your boss? Be at your desk ready to work at the appointed time. If you have a lot of personal baggage, arrive at work at least 15 minutes early. Get situated with coffee on-hand prior to your start time. Greet your co-workers, but let them know you will catch up on the show over break.

How does something as simple as arriving to work on time impress your boss? Two words will answer this question – productivity and performance. Productivity and statistics are important to your boss. If you’re not at your desk by your appointed start time, productivity levels decrease in proportion with the decreased amount of work.

Your punctuality will look even better, if you have an office full of “late arrivers.” You will look very impressive sitting at your desk, greeting the boss when all the other employees are either not at work yet, or in the break room. Being ready to work on time reveals exemplary workplace ethics and values.

It's the little things that count when it comes to raises and promotions. An act as simple as being at your desk on time and ready to work goes a long way in impressing management. You will demonstrate that you are an employee who is committed to the company and should be recognized.
