English Quiz for Bank Exams 2015 – Set 23 – Reading Comprehension

Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. Here is a set of English Quiz for Bank and Insurance Exams 2015. The Quiz is based on Reading Comprehension.

Everyone deals with Integrity
underlying moral issue in their everyday life. Most of our parents would have
taught us during our growing up years that we must inculcate this virtue
because it is the right thing to do. Question arises-What is integrity? It
means honesty – keeping to one’s word even if it costs us dearly to do so. If
you pledge to ‘love, honour and cherish your spouse until death do you part’,
you must honour that promise. If you agree to do a task, you must do it.
Integrity comes in many forms, but honesty and dependability are two traits
that are expected in most workplace situations. Irresponsible behaviour and
distrust can make a work environment tense and uncomfortable.
A strong work ethic shows
co-workers and clients that you’re reliable and take your responsibilities
seriously. Polite communication, respectable behaviour and fiscal
Irresponsibility also help you stand out as a trustworthy employee. Working
diligently when you’re on the clock is a clear example of workplace integrity.
Socializing, surfing the Internet, making personal phone calls, texting and
frequent snacking are activities that detract from work time. Saving those activities
for break time will show your boss, co-workers and customers that you work hard
when you’re on the clock. Even if you don’t actually clock in and out with a
time card, focusing on your work responsibilities while you’re at your desk,
work station or production area will showcase your strong work habits. Abiding
by company policies is another powerful way to demonstrate integrity.
Cutting corners and neglecting to
follow workplace regulations can lead to mistakes, problems and even dangerous
situations. Your willingness to properly record financial transactions, safely
dispense of hazardous or toxic materials, follow company protocol for dealing
with clients, perform clean-up or set-up procedures and properly maintain
equipment shows others that you’re not just looking for the easy way out.
Establishing yourself as a trustworthy worker who submits to company policies
shows your boss and coworkers that you’ll faithfully carry out your duties.
Respecting those you work with
reveals your desire to create a healthy work environment. Polite communication,
appropriate interactions and respect for co-workers’ thoughts and ideas
demonstrate your ability to look beyond your own interests to pursue team
centred work goals. As you deal with co-workers honestly and respectfully, you
establish a level of trust with them. Integrity in the workplace also stems
from moral and ethical behaviour.
Making sure there’s no reason to
question your conduct is one of the best ways to prove that you are an honest
and dependable employee. Avoid using company products or equipment for personal
use and submit exact receipts for travel or meal reimbursements. Don’t
over-promise what you can’t provide and strive to meet deadlines. Work
productively and cooperate during company meetings so you don’t appear lazy or
apathetic, and don’t call in sick if you aren’t. By exhibiting responsible
behaviour, you don’t give co-workers or clients the opportunity to question
your integrity.
