Top performers are always reliable and dependable in their own work ethics and when a situation arises. As an example, you report to work on time without exceeding breaks, vacation, or similar to which because you believe that time is precious for it to be wasted.
Reliability means you are the “GO TO GUY.” If they want something done, they go to you. The company can depend on you any time and you are always ready to face issues within his concern instead of blaming it to others or to the company itself.
