5 Attributes Employees Look For
There are many attributes employees look for when hiring new staff, but here are five that you will find towards the top of the list.
Honesty & Integrity
Personal integrity and honesty are some of the top attributes employees look for, particularly now in light of all the recent corporate scandals. People with these attributes also tend to create optimal business relationships.
Being able to work hard and meet deadlines is definitely a great attribute. Having a natural work ethic without your boss having to be on your back day in and out is something employees search for.
Employees are looking for workers that are loyal and have the best interests of the company in mind. People that can be trusted to represent the company with pride.
In this day and age work doesn't necessarily run from 9am to 5pm, Monday through to Friday so employees are looking for flexible workers. They are on the lookout for people that are able to adapt to changes and quickly re focus.
Communication skills are essential whether talking to clients, or colleague, or sending work related emails. Those with great communication skills find it easy to clearly and effectively get jobs done.
