In the workplace, being dependable means individuals are willing to complete their tasks, to take responsibility for their actions and take ownership of outcomes from those actions. They willingly perform their job and show up every day to fulfill the goals of the organisation.

Being dependable is being reliable and fulfilling your obligations. It is important to reduce the time and effort required to complete a task because there is a focus on accomplishing the task at hand. Holding an employee accountable can help them to value their own work, increasing their self-confidence when they succeed.
