Your attitude at work matters. People will look at your work ethic and how you treat your coworkers, and it will say something about you and your relationship with God.

 Take time to help people

[13] For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. [14] For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” [15] But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another.

Galatians 5:13-15 NLT

Did you ever take any classes in school that were on a curve? I have. The worst part was that your peers become your competitors. The higher your classmates score, the lower your grade is. Hopefully your work environment doesn’t feel like that, but regardless of the culture, your attitude to help others will always make you stand out in a good way.Our culture has a selfishness epidemic that we can’t blame on “the curve” many of us suffered in high school. If you really want to stand out at your job, make it a point to be out to help others, not just get ahead. Now make sure you are also staying focused on your own responsibilities so you aren’t perceived as careless, but when you go the extra mile for someone else, people notice. When you help someone else get ahead, that says something about you and your relationship with God.

Take an interest in your coworkers’ lives

[2] Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. [3] If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.
 
Galatians 6:2-3 NLT

Everyday, it’s important to focus ourselves on what matters most. Even though we work to earn a salary and do our job well, that’s not what’s most important. Life is about relationships. What matters most is always the who, not the what. Put that into practice by making it a point to get to know your coworkers. Set the stage for building great relationships with some of your coworkers outside of work. How we act on the job matters.
