First, let your work ethics bring God glory. Second, keep an eye out for those you see struggling with life's circumstances.
Third, when you work with someone then occasionally include your faith in the conversation.
Fourth, be wise and diligently listening to ask good questions that probe into things of the Word. Jesus was good at asking questions to cause people to think.

Sometimes it is best to just get them thinking about the logic or reasons behind what they believe with good questions. It may help them realize, their beliefs are not all that solid. If you can shake the foundation, they may continue the conversation more in detail at that moment or later.

Welcome.

Is your capacity a resident chaplain? If yes, then people are aware. As someone who preaches the Gospel I am in close proximity to others who are preaching the Gospel. So I notice various styles and various tactics.

I'm a purist so I try to present the Gospel with as few distractions as possible. The idea is that even though it will attract fewer people, it will attract people who are singularly seeking the Gospel.

Other groups have a lot of fun activities. People are much more attracted to fun activities and things that are decidedly not the Gospel. We see this at churches a lot who have a lot of extra incentives. They do much better compared to churches with fewer activities.

Depends on your style. You should try to keep it interesting and engaging.

read some books by Timothy Keller who started this church in NYC reaching the urban working population of young professionals...it seems this church has many programs and opportunities for working people to learn more about faith and how to apply it in their professional lives. Things like seminars and retreats as well as different ministires according to what profession people are, eg theres different groups for artists, writers, financiers, doctors, lawyers, etc.

Some workplaces have prayer time or weekly bible studies. Usually held in lunchtimes.

"We are living in a world that has lost their cultural integrity, and it will worsen.
Less and less shall be grounded in God's work that needs done, here in the now.
And, but a few shall endure to the end. These things must be accepted from a society
that has lost their spiritual equilibrium, and to know these things have been told of...to be."
