The Values Employers Look For

Monday, 7 December 2015

Employers want skilled people, but they also want people with the right personality. Discussed in this article are the values that any employer will find valuable.

Honesty and integrity are the building blocks of establishing a good working relationship. If you have these qualities the employer can trust that you won't do the wrong thing, or put the company, its employees, or its customers in jeopardy because of your actions.

Professionalism means you act in a responsible and fair manner in all your activities. By being professional you show maturity and don't get petty when dealing with problems involving customers or other employees.

Loyalty means you have a strong commitment to the company and believe in the work their doing. A loyal employee has the company's best interests in mind. They won't undermine the employer's decisions but they will tell them what they don't want to hear, if what they have to say will help the company.

Reliability means the employer can count on you to take responsibility and do your job. Reliability involves keeping any promises you make, arriving to work on time every day and maintaining an expected quality of work.

Dedication is an important skill because it means that you will keep working on a task until it has been completed and you won't give up just because it gets difficult. Employers love people who show dedication, because they know they'll get the job done.

Enthusiastic means you have a drive or passion for the job and demonstrate this passion through all your words and actions. When you're enthusiastic you care about the work you are doing, so you'll try your hardest to make sure it turns out great.

Autonomy means you can work with little or no supervision. This is good because the employer has their own work to do. They don't have time to watch their employees at all times of the day. An employee that can work autonomously knows what they have to do and when they have to do it without being told.

A willingness to learn means you understand that no matter how much experience you have, there's always something new to learn. If you're willing to learn you understand that learning is a constant process, and that it's ok to say I don't know, but I can find out when asked a question.

Adaptability goes hand in hand with a willingness to learn and is important when embracing new ideas, concepts, and ways of doing things. When you're adaptable you can easily take on board new things that you've learnt and put them into practise.

Self-Confidence means you believe in yourself and your abilities. Employers want people that believe in their abilities, because it means they won't always be disrupting others and asking them to check their work or help them to make a decision.This doesn't mean someone with self-confidence never seeks assistance; they just have confidence in their own ability to figure the smaller problems out on their own.

By embracing and improving your skills in these areas you can make yourself a more effective worker that any employer should want to hire.

Until Next Time,
