Appear Productive Productivity in the workplace is as important as ever. Employers want workers who get their work done accurately in a timely manner. In fact, most companies cannot afford to employ someone who takes too long to complete their tasks.

How can you appear fabulously productive in the eyes of your employer? Here are a few ways:

1. Provide Status Reports

Some supervisors are not completely aware of what you're working on day-to-day. Check in regularly with your boss to discuss your assignments. This is also a great chance to ask any lingering questions you may have about specific assignments or projects.

2. Volunteer To Help With Additional Tasks

If you find yourself having some time to spare during your workday, ask your supervisor if there's anything else you can do to help out the department. Perhaps another employee is on vacation and you could take over one of their assignments while they're away. Or maybe a project is overdue and the team members could use your expertise to finish it up.

3. Look Like You're Working

It may sound obvious… but it's vital you actually look productive for your employer to think you're being productive. This means resisting the temptatio to sit on the phone with a friend, check your Facebook or blast your music while at work. Save those things for your free time at home, and show your employer that you're working hard to help the company succeed during work hours.

4. Be Present

During meetings and at the office, actively listen and take notes about future assignments and new clients. It's easy to check out when a meeting lasts longer than an hour, but it can ultimately hurt your performance to daze off and think about other things. By actively listening, you'll also be able to ask good questions during the meeting to ensure you completely understand your assignments. This will undoubtedly keep you being productive in the future.

How do you make sure your employer sees you as a productive employee?
