Many people shy away from flaunting their successes, though a healthy dose of self-promotion is necessary at work. Staying informed about the value you provide also helps you stay motivated and track your progress towards your overall professional goals.
Plus, if your career ever leads you to a change in companies, you’ll be able to demonstrate why you’ll be a good employee in interviews. And heading into a performance review or asking for a raise is much easier with a solid understanding of how you contribute to the company’s bottom line.
That’s why it’s key to know how to communicate your value to your employer. Make it a habit to check in with the results of your projects and note in concrete terms how successful they were. When you have a big win — like if initiative doubled revenue this month, or you had a breakthrough idea that halved a project’s timeline. Don’t be afraid to draw attention to your success! When it comes time for a performance review or a salary discussion, you’ll be glad to have examples of work that proves your worth.
