View from the Bridge: The Perfect Employee

June 20th, 2017

A WORD FROM THE TOP
This month we’ve been working with clients on a number of different projects ranging from onboarding new employees, assisting with building a great corporate culture, and developing a workplace cultural sensitivity workshop. In all cases, the common denominator is people.

Now more than ever hiring people who exhibit the 15 qualities outlined in this month’s featured article is so important. No longer is it all about skill sets and experience. These days the importance of having emotional intelligence and the ability to work as part of a global community is critical to success of both the employee and the employer. Please enjoy the article from Inc. online below.

Warm regards,

15 QUALITIES OF THE PERFECT EMPLOYEE

Credit: Melissa Lamson, Inc.

In today’s global business environment, hiring (and keeping) the right employee is one of the most difficult jobs a manager has. Often leaders focus on the skill sets needed to get a job done right and overlook basic skills and personality traits critical to being a valued and productive team member. The consequences of a bad hire can be steep–personality clashes, project failures, and even firings.
While every employee has a unique mix of skills and personality traits, there are common ones that every hiring manager should look for.
Candidates who have these 15 qualities should definitely make your short list.
1. Agile.
Employees should be flexible, nimble, and quick. They should be able to react and respond to changing needs and customer desires and to the moving parts in our global business world.

THIS IS AWKWARD!

Your future CEO?: It’s grad season. Let’s take a look at (potentially) your future employees and leaders. : D
