Is keenly aware of the time frame in which tasks or projects need to be done. Accepts and mirrors the level of urgency conveyed by manager or customer being served. Puts priority on the needs of the organization or the needs of its customers. This contrasts with the behavior of individuals who lose sight of approaching deadlines, fail to fully accept ownerships for commitments that have been made to others, and/or make decisions and spend time in self-serving ways that fail to place proper emphasis on organizational or customer needs.
Possesses sufficient job skills and knowledge to perform the job in a competent manner. Can demonstrate skills and knowledge in day-to-day situations. This is distinctly different from those individuals who lack sufficient job skills or knowledge to meet job requirements or who have the skills and knowledge yet struggle to apply them to day-to-day situations on the job.
Makes sure to understand every safety practice expected by the organization. Takes no shortcuts that increase the risks of accidents, personal injuries, or equipment failures. Looks for unsafe practices in the workplace and takes responsibility to ensure that others are aware of the potential impact. This is distinctly different from those who are unaware of many safety expectations, take shortcuts that increase safety risks, and/or fail to recognize and take timely action to increase safe practices by others.
Meets or exceeds productivity standards that have been established for his/her organizational level or position. Has successfully combined skills, ability, and effort level to ensure that expectations related to results/output are achieved. This contrasts with those individuals who fail to meet standards due to a shortfall in essential skills, ability or the level of energy/effort required.
Quality of Work
Has established a track record of producing work that is highly accurate, demonstrates attention to detail and reflects well on the organization. Is personally committed to high quality work and encourages others to have similar standards. This differs from those who cannot be relied upon to produce high quality work, pay little attention to detail, show little pride in a job well done and/or set a poor example for co-workers or direct reports.
Quantity of Work
Produces an amount of work that meets or exceeds job expectations. Makes sure that quality does not suffer as the quantity of work increases. Works effectively with peers and carries own share of team workload. This contrasts with those whose output level is clearly below organizational needs, those who make unacceptable tradeoffs between quantity and quality, and/or those whose output is typically below that of others when they are placed on a team.
Acts in ways that demonstrate personal integrity and serves as a positive example of why others should trust the motives of the organization. Views himself or herself as a reflection of the organization by following through on commitments and accepting ownership of any mistakes he or she might make. Leaves others with the clear impression that integrity is a core value at this organization. This contrasts with individuals who make commitments that go unmet, fail to acknowledge their role in disappointing events, or whose actions (or inaction) leave others with doubts about the level of trust that should be placed in the organization.
