It's time to grow your team.
Finding the right employees feels like an uphill battle. You need help at that moment, but you understand that not just anyone will do. You need a quality employee that's really going to add to the success of your team and your business. Beyond the direct skills you'll likely need, like the ability to communicate and work in a team, you'll also want to consider the general aspects that make up a good employee. Take some time to discover if your candidate is the right fit, and you'll be on your way to not just hiring employees, but hiring quality employees.
Here are the 4 key aspects to look for in a candidate:
1. Embrace Change
Look for employees that welcome better processes, improvements for the business and are willing to try new things. If you bring in an employee that can't handle the change and instead complains, you're shooting your culture. That type of employee will hurt the morale of your other employees.
2. Use Their Voice
You need employees that are not only capable but will speak up. Even better if they will speak when others won't or don't. Are they able to hear others, and speak to their needs?
Employees that also share the praise are an asset to your team. Taking a moment to be grateful to fellow emplolyees and acknowledging how others help and support the success of your organization is a sign of a solid addition to your team.
It's important to the success of your company, that you have employees that feel empowered to speak up. When their opinion matters and is treated respectfully no matter the issue, they will speak and take action on the most important issues. Empowered employees are more likely to speak up when a fellow employee is providing poor service, and take immediate actions to improve the situation.
