Don’t your bosses also have higher responsibilities? Here is a list of ways to get your hands on more responsibilities at workplace:

Reliable Plus Resourceful
If you have a blend of two qualities- dependability with resourcefulness, it is a challenge for anyone to take away bigger responsibilities from you. You might think it is quite difficult for you to be resourceful. Well, not at all. Anyone can be resourceful. It just needs development of a few skills like knowing where to get help from, how to secure collaboration, etc. Then you are all sorted.
