TRG Talk helps us to answer the question: “Do businesses

In today’s modern society, the concept of “Professionalism” is definitely the norm, the “must-have” for every business practice and every professional. The question is “Do businesses and employees hold the same definition of professionalism”? Furthermore, what factors contribute to the professionalism of not just one individual, but the entire organisation made up of different personalities?

To answer the above questions, TRG Talk - Talent seminar with the topic that most people concern about: "Professionalism in the workplace: Does your perception differ from ours?", took place on the November, 2017. The main speaker of the event, Rick Yvanovich (Founder and CEO of TRG International), with more than 30 years working in various fields, helped participants to gain a better understanding of the concept of Professionalism in the workplace.

Definition of Professional and Professionalism

At the seminar, Rick affirmed that professional is the premise of professionalism. The prerequisite in creating professionalism is owning a body of knowledge, having a scope of practice, and is a representative of their field of practice demonstrated through their behaviours.

Rick further defined the concept of professionalism by giving specific examples, in which professionalism does not only confine in just dressing or communicating appropriately but also the way the employee is able to conduct within his/her scope of expertise, and displays the values of his/her profession (integrity, ethics, trustworthy ...). According to Rick, professionalism can also be seen through consistent high performance, contribution to the organization and continuously seeking way to improve personal skills.

4 factors contribute in building professionalism

Previously, TRG Talent conducted a quick survey among professionals from various fields, and the results were that there are 4 main factors that influence an individual's professionalism: Image, Communication and Competence and Attitude.

Attitude was agreed by many participants as the number one most important factor because having the right attitude drives you to the right behaviours, which help to show professionalism towards colleagues and supervisors. Meanwhile, Communication and Image occupy for nearly 50% because they are the external factors that we can easily see and judge at the first impression. And the fourth factor is Competence, it takes time to prove your capacity, effort and persistence so this is the factor cannot be seen and judged immediately.

All participants were welcomed to raise any question or share their own experience in an open and warm atmosphere. The discussion ends with Rick once again stressing the importance of maintaining our attitude at all time, because as mentioned above, attitude is the most important factor in defining professionalism.
