In your opinion, what are some important characteristics of a co-worker (someone you work closely with)? Use reasons and specific examples to explain why these characteristics are important. A large number of service class people spend major portion of their time at the work place with their co-workers. Considering an ideal situation, we can divide our one day’s time in three equal segments like: 8 hours for sleep, 8 hours for work and balance 8 hours for family. In a way (1/3rd) one third of our time we spend with our co-workers. If those co-workers are the good quality of persons, we develop and improve our attitudes, behaviors and thus overall personality. Conversely one can deteriorate his or her personality. It is not out of place to mention here that “People Are Known By Company They Keep”. Hence, co-workers play vital and important role in building one's personality. In my opinion, the essential characteristics of a co-worker are the following. Ideally a co-worker must be punctual of time, co-operative, thorough at the job, loyal and dedicated worker. One must be good teacher and trainer so that he or she can develop the juniors and rarely peers who are totally new and little less experienced. By remaining in company of such a co-worker one would be motivated to cultivate and maintain all of his or her good points. In contrast if the co-worker is an unsatisfied person, not having know-how of the job, disloyal, irregular, undisciplined and uncooperative, with low moral and motivation, can certainly have negative and detrimental effect on others that can ruin the work culture and environment. This would injure company’s turnover and proceeds even. To summarize, an ideal co-worker should possesses all of the aforesaid qualities that make other workers more efficient, effective and highly productive. (271 Words)
