What Traits Make a Great Employee

  • Reliability: Reliable employees are those people you can count on whether you have a large or small business. They often thrive in a fast-paced work environment, and you know they will show up on time, prepared for the tasks ahead of them. They stay focused even when they aren’t being monitored, and you will begin to notice these employees tend to arrive early for their shift and get to work immediately..
  • Communication: Good communication skills are often the key to a person’s success, whether it’s in society in general, or in their workplace. Being able to clearly communicate any issues or details to both customers and coworkers is crucial in nearly every field. Individuals who are able to articulate their thoughts clearly will be a benefit to your staff.
  • Teamwork: Related to the importance of communication is how well an employee works in a team setting. Engaging with others on the staff, being able to fill any role that is needed, and remaining supportive and respectful of others can provide a boost to morale and productivity - even when things don’t go as planned.

These are the best characteristics a temp worker can display, and every employer should be on the lookout for these qualities, especially if they regularly avail themselves of temporary staffing.
