It's been well documented that one of the reason that people are dissatisfied with their job is that they're not recognized enough (or at all) for the value they provide to their employer.
There are, of course, things that you as the employee can do to change that. As you might have guessed, a better performance is one of those things. However, for the purposes of this blog post, we're going to assume that you're already a good employee whose performance speaks for itself.
So how can you tackle this problem outside of your already positive performance? Below are four tips for receiving more recognition in the workplace:
#1-Network and interact more with others.
When you interact more with other people, those people will be more aware of the work that you're doing. And if you're doing exceptional work - and once again, we assume that you are - then they will be more likely to tell others about what you're doing. And then it's only a matter of time before management hears about you.
#2-Participate and get involved as much as possible.
This is another way to gain more exposure. Volunteer for projects and group activities. Not only will this help to elevate your visibility, but you'll also be in a better position to achieve the first item on our list, which is to network and interact more with others.
#3-Focus on what matters the most to achieve the desired results.
A great way to gain more recognition is to make what is most important to your employer more important to you. Your employer, of course, wants a healthier bottom line. As a result, you should be focused on helping to create that healthier bottom line. And when you do, you'll increase the likelihood that you'll be recognized for your efforts.
#4-Be a self-promoter (when and where appropriate).
We're not suggesting that you brag and/or become boastful. However, some people are a bit shy and timid. They're not comfortable with attention. Well, you can't get more recognition without the attention that comes with it. (Tip: social media is a possible avenue for self-promotion, if it's done appropriately.)
