Participate in company activities outside of the office if they are offered, like community service
Work should never be all about the business side of things, but the welfare of its employees, with company activities like community service, holiday parties, etc. If offered, plan to take advantage of a few activities to engage more in your office atmosphere. Just like with networking, participating around the office makes you personable and present within the company. Community service opportunities are one of the best ways to connect with your company outside of the daily grind of work. Join in and become a team leader or even just a participant and help out, showing your company pride in its other programs. If these opportunities are not available, suggest one, like a community service project the whole office can participate in or a holiday lunch that’ll get co-workers together.
