To be successful and respected in your job, it’s important to act professionally.

Do these six things and you’ll be on good terms with your boss and be taken seriously at work.

6 good habits of professional people

1.  Get to work on time

Show that you are reliable by arriving on time (or slightly early) to work. It helps to plan your route to work and give yourself plenty of time to travel, taking into account traffic or public transport delays.

2.  Assist others

If you have completed all your tasks ask your manager or workmates if there is anything else they would like you to work on. This is a great way to show you are a team player.

3.  Be honest and communicate

While it’s important to finish tasks on time, if you don’t think you’re going to, be honest and let your colleagues and/or boss know before it’s due. This way the load may be shared and the deadline still met. Telling the truth is an important part of being professional.

4.  Treat others with respect 

It's important to treat everyone at your work with respect. Part of this is listening carefully to what others have to say and any ideas they may want to share.

5.  Keep learning 

From your first day be sure to be open to learning new things and don’t let your skills become outdated. Take every opportunity to learn something new or gain a new skill. This will show you can adapt as the business does.

6.  Keep your personal life separate 

Another important thing to keep in mind is keeping your private life private. Ensure you restrict the time you spend on your personal phone and social media. Keep personal visits to a minimum too.

Along with being professional, remember to always keep a positive attitude and do your best.
