Get a firm footing on the corporate ladder | Inside Business

Employees looking to climb the corporate ladder and stay ahead of the game should behave in a way that sets them apart from the pack.

“There are many types of work behaviors that employers look for,” said Dan Ryan, principal of Ryan Search & Consulting in Tennessee. “Some of the most important include the ability to work effectively with others, the ability to communicate clearly, both verbally and in written form, and the ability to do what is needed to get the job done.

“Employees who follow only the letter of the job description end up being stuck in neutral in most cases,” Ryan said.
