During these times of uncertainty, many people are finding themselves without the job security they once had. With this in mind, you may be searching for ways to highlight that you’re a great employee to keep around. One way to do this is by showing your boss that you’re focused both on your work, and on improving yourself professionally.

In this week's episode, Damian Birkel walks us through the three most important things to do while working remotely to increase your job security:

  1. Keep your boss up to date on what you are working on while remote
  2. Schedule regular check-in meetings with your boss
  3. Grow your skills

Damian also discusses what he calls the “pledge of allegiance” to your boss and the pros and cons that come with it. This pledge of allegiance will show your boss that you are there to support them, and not undermine them.

We discuss these great tips, and so much more, so give this episode a listen!
