We previously reviewed what were the top 10 traits of a great employer. Now, we will be sharing some of the characteristics of an ideal employee:

  • Managers need reliable workers, people who they can count on for their business to run smoothly. This includes, but may not be limited to, arriving to work on time and not missing shifts.
  • Hard working candidates are highly preferred since they will do whatever they can to get the job done.

Top 10 Traits of a Great Employer


Question: What makes a good employer? We were curious as well, so we surveyed our large community of 170K+ for answers. We asked members to select ten characteristics that their ideal boss would have. Here are some takeaways from our findings.

Employees want:

  • A leader, a person who is focused and can guide workers in the right direction. This trait is much needed when the team has to accomplish company goals.
  • A boss that is supportive and has a positive attitude is favorable. Staffers like to be encouraged and praised for their work, as it helps them grow to become greater individuals and move into bigger roles.
  • To hear the truth, even though it may be unpleasant. Honesty is key!
