Bosses, This Is How You Know You Have A Good Employee
They Manage Their Time Wisely
Let’s be real, work never ends. But good workers know when to prioritize their work so that they’re able to work more efficiently and leave work on time.
That’s not to say that they don’t take on extra tasks if they’re capable of doing so. Efficient workers instead know what they need to do and do it to the best of their abilities.
They're Cordial With Their Work Mates
We’re not saying good workers have to be best friends with their colleagues (if they are, it’s a plus!) but being cordial and friendly just shows that they’ve got great interpersonal skills and have the potential to be team players.
They Don't Gossip
Instead of partaking in mindless gossip, great employees don’t bother with negative behaviours.
They Are Positive People
A good employee does two things to help create a positive change in the work place:
They motivate themselves
They motivate others
Having a positive outlook is a trait so often looked over because working can sometimes cause people to feel jaded and unhappy.
A good employee won’t embrace change blindly but instead, use change as a way to help them be better at their work.
They’ll find means and ways to make the most out of the change given and work towards making the change work for them.
They're Clear On What They Want
This is another soft skill that not every worker possess.
The ability to understand and clarify things is what makes a good employee even greater.
They Are Genuine
Successful workers don’t make it a point to suck up to their bosses, they win their bosses over with heart and genuine capabilities.
They Always Want To Do Better
Not to be confused with perfectionism, wanting to do better just means that successful people want to be the best versions of themselves.
They understand that they can’t always get it right but they’re always in the state of trying to be better and better at what they do at work.
They're Invested In Their Jobs
They make it a point to know the names of the people they work with, they make it a point to educate themselves on the standing issues that happen in the office and they make it a point to know the ins and outs of the job.
They Fight For A Better Work Place Environment
Good employees speak up for their colleagues and ensure equal treatment for all.
While it’s not their job to do so, good employees (and good people in general) speak well of their colleagues who work just as hard as they do and give credit where credit is due.
