People assume that keeping their head down and getting your job done is enough, is that only part of the job? But, you need to maintain a relationship with your co-workers.
In your workplace, you are not only representing yourself, but you’re a walking/talking advertisement for your company’s brand. Hence, if you are not dressed up properly, and/or during a fire, you are sending a message that you’re not serious about yourself, your professional goals or your company seriously.
Take the initiation to get things done instead of waiting for an opportunity.
