It takes a great many resources to operate a business. Computers, printers, desks … all are necessary. Even paper, pens and rubber bands fill vital roles.
But what are the most important resources in any workplace? People. Nothing is of greater value.
You take care of the equipment used in your job and wouldn’t think of harming any of it. Upgrading it when possible is preferred. That same thinking must be applied to co-workers. Is there something you can do to help them improve as individuals or professionals? And what can you learn from someone on the team?
Take initiative to make the people around you even better and let them do the same for you. You’ll be improving the most important part of the organization.
