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!

To learn more on this, see the visual infographic below:


These traits were what was told to us by our hospitality-based network, however, they are applicable across all industries. So employers, do keep note, because you surely would like to be that great boss that everybody wants to have.

Look forward to our blog post on the top 10 traits of a great employee coming soon.
