How You Can Tell You’re Doing a Good Job

December 20th, 2016

When you’ve worked at the same place or in the same position for a while, it can be hard to measure whether or not you’re doing a good job. You may find yourself feeling stalled or stuck in work; in reality, you could be doing an excellent job and not even giving yourself credit. Here’s how you can tell if you’re doing a good job:

Your Colleagues Respect You.

If you come into work and your colleagues immediately start asking for your opinion, there’s a good chance that they respect you. If they respect you, that means that you’re likely doing a good job with your everyday duties. Other ways in which colleagues can show respect is by requesting your presence in certain meetings or asking you to go to work-related happy hours or social events.

Your Boss Counts on You.

Does your boss assign you important tasks before she assigns them to anyone else? Does she tell you over and over again that she appreciates your help? Does he value your opinion if you speak up in a meeting? If so, your boss counts on you, which also means that you’re doing a good job. If you weren’t doing a good job, your boss wouldn’t rely on you so heavily.

Your Work Has Had a Direct Impact on Your Workplace.

One of the most important ways in which you can determine whether or not you’re doing a good job is by figuring out whether or not your work has had a direct impact on your workplace. Have you invented a new method of inter-office communication that is now being used by everyone? Did you implement a new productivity policy that has been widely adopted? If so, you are likely doing a good job as these types of innovations show you take pride in your work.
