Are You Contributing to Quality Work?

All jobs serve different purposes and with different tasks come varying degrees of importance. Some jobs require precision and accuracy to have potential problems within the organization whiles others have less of an emphasis on quality work and more on high productivity levels.
I have worked for an organization that just tried to “get by” and found the situation rather frustrating. As an employee I felt discouraged that my manager and coworkers had no ambition to be better or focus on making improvements. It was a customer service related job and I always felt that our customers did not receive the quality customer service they deserved. Our panel study indicated 63% of employees feel their organizations strive for quality work.
I have also had the pleasure of working for organization where quality work was what employees strived for everyday. I enjoyed being part of a team that cared about our work and took pride in our customer service. This trickled down to how our customers felt they were treated and maintained our reputation for quality customer service.
In life there are many ways of completing any task. Fundamentally, there is a right and wrong way to do anything. The question becomes: Do you complete your work with quality in mind or do you simply complete your work with no regard of quality?
Do you feel your organization focuses on quality?
