Proactively attending networking events is an easy way for an employee to convey dedication to his manager. Not only does it show a commitment to personal professional growth, but a commitment to the growth of the company.
Networking events are a great way to polish up on communication skills, expand networks and grow business. This makes any employee stand out to a manager. If it’s a neck-in-neck race for a promotion, networking events can provide the value needed to break the tie.
