According to Beverley Stone, a chartered business psychologist, working hard is always going to enhance a person's chances of promotion and advancement, but it is only a third of what is required.
One of the other major requirements is exposure, as people have to be seen in the right place by the right people, while the other key thing is image.
"You have to walk the talk, you have to look good, you have to have a can-do attitude, you have to be positive and you have to be a company worker," she explained.
Although people will be judged on their actions later in their career, they will also be judged on their inactions, so keeping your head down is not always the best bet for advancement, Ms Stone noted.
