Understanding company guidelines
Understanding guidelines is a crucial factor in how to become a great employee. You are new to the company, make a point of reading and re-reading the company guidelines.

Respecting everyone in the organization, starting from the cleaning staff to your CEO, is key to becoming an exemplary employee.
Avoid talking ill of others, as becoming the root of office animosity derails you from bagging the employee of the month title.
