Employee traits | Five ways to make the boss your No.1 fan

Five ways to make the boss your No.1 fan

Every employee wants validation from their boss. This is because it gives employees a sense of worth, they feel appreciated and they feel as though they have a valued purpose within the company.

For the majority of an employee's career, they spend a large portion of time doing things that can help improve their boss’ perception of them, perhaps to help them climb the corporate ladder or to accrue a gleaming character reference that will benefit them in future when switching jobs. 

There are many ways that employees may choose to go about this. Whether it is consistently staying late to prove commitment to the role or handing in work extra early and asking for constructive criticism to improve it, employees constantly strive to feel liked and valued by their boss as this gives them a sense of purpose.
