Great employees make your business work better and allow you to achieve more and in doing so help your business be successful. They’re essential and they fit a mould quite often as you will see below.

Good employees have a lot in common and here are seven of those factors that make them great.

1. Good Fit For The Job

The best employees are the ones who have the skills required to do their job. You can assess the abilities of potential candidates through open questions, problem-solving quizzes, written questionnaires, homework projects, and other tests that can allow them to prove that they are a good fit for the job. If an employee isn't able to do the job you hired them for, your entire company will suffer.

2. Solid Work Ethic And Integrity

Always ensure you hire honest people, with solid work ethic and integrity. One single unethical or dishonest employee can ruin decades of efforts to build a good market reputation. Today, negative online reviews can shatter the credibility of a business. This is why you have to do everything you can to avoid negative reviews in the first place. Hiring only honest people with solid work ethic is the first step toward building an iron clad reputation for your business.

3. Motivation

Research suggests a fat paycheck isn't the best motivator. In fact, money doesn't motivate people to do their job the best way they can. If you want to motivate your employees to perform better than expected, you have to find other methods to determine them to perform at their best.

4. Talent

Identifying and recruiting people who are talented and who show innate abilities to assess complex situations is one of the best methods to secure a bright future for your business. Talented employees will usually come up with innovative ideas to improve their results. Learn to rely on these innovative people to take your business to the next level. There are not so many successful 'one-man-show' businesses out there.

5. High Performance

Good employees are usually the ones who can achieve the highest performance for their duties. They are able to push their limits and to motivate the other members of their teams to deliver high-quality services to your customers. Also, high performers can motivate the other employees to strive to achieve better results.

6. Initiative

Micromanagement is a difficult endeavor. This is why you should always do your best to hire people who are able to work independently and to take decisions on a very short notice. Employees that require permanent supervision and guidance will affect the productivity of your business.

7. Stick To The Rules

Good employees adhere to the rules of their employers. They know they are all cogs in a greater mechanism that works well only for as long as each of these parts fulfills its role. Employees who don't follow the rules are a bad example for the other members of the team.
