Working Ethic To me, work ethics is the sum of all values that an employee must exercise to deserve staying in an excellent organization. These would mean being committed to achieve the objectives of the organization by giving out one's best at work; being a team worker; learning one's work by heart; cultivating a "customers first" attitude, and projecting a good image of one's organization by projecting a good image of oneself as an employee. These would mean being "trustworthy, be it rain, be it shine;" being prompt; being honest, courteous; kind and humane without jeopardizing the company's integrity and one's own; and being just and strong enough to instill discipline in order to live up to the core value of work excellence espoused by true SEARCAns.
Personal Motto If others can, I can.
