Do you know how to be the employee your company wants to promote? Related: 7 Reasons Why You Lost That Promotion I heard an interesting statistic on the radio awhile back that really sparked my interest. It stated that 90% of people who do this are promoted. Then, they had listeners call in and try to guess what that one thing was. It was something I personally NEVER would have guessed. About 90% of people who keep a candy bowl on their desks for people who visit their office or drop by are promoted. Can you believe it? Maybe you can… maybe you can't… but it got me to thinking. I think, as a generalization (I use this term loosely), employees can fall into one of two categories: wanters and doers. So, are you a wanter or a doer?
