The concept of professionalism often relates to your conformity to workplace norms concerning your treatment of others and the workplace. This includes showing up on time, dressing well, keeping your work area clean, sending email messages without typos and without exposing the addresses of others, not using company equipment and supplies for personal use, not playing music -- even with headphones -- that others can hear, refraining from gossiping, parking where you’re supposed to, respecting office kitchen and break room practices, avoiding foul language and not leaving early.
