Being firm with commitments and consistently acting in a reliable manner.
What is it?
Dependability is the regular practice of timely following through on one’s commitments. When a dependable person makes a commitment to do something, it is as good as done, and done well.
Why is it important?
Employers are very aware of who can be depended upon and who can’t. They know who delivers results and who makes excuses. Dependable employees get their work done on time, are punctual with work and meetings, and can be trusted with important tasks. For this reason, they are often those that receive raises and promotions.
