Working well in a team is a huge part of PR. But in a new job, how do you earn the oh-so-important respect of your co-workers?

5 Ways to Earn Respect from Your Co-workers posted on the blog Movin’ On Up provides some valuable tips to consider when attempting to build respect between you and your peers.

1. Have a great attitude. Be optimistic, regardless of the situation. Part of this involves showing gratitude for your coworkers’ help and talking positively about others.

2. Develop a strong work ethic. Finishing your tasks on-time and putting your best foot forward every day shows that you are a person that your co-workers can depend on.

3. Demonstrate integrity. Be honest with your peers and act in a way that shows your genuine character. Follow company procedures and policies and make decisions that make it easy for people to want to trust you.

4. Embody professionalism. Dress appropriately and be aware of your behavior. Prove to your co-workers that you are a professional.

5. Respect others. Be polite and courteous. Respect their personal space, opinions and work. Your mom was right: treat others like you’d want to be treated.

Keep in mind: earning respect takes time, so be patient.
