July 4, 2016 | Author: | Posted in Small Business

Start-ups are small bright eyes reaching out for big dreams! The team plays a major role in taking the start-up to new heights. Not clear what to look for in a Employee?

Here are the Must-have qualities to look for in your employees:

1. Passionate
Passion directly reflects in a person’s eyes. You cannot miss this while selecting your employee. Passion to work and to make a difference would only prove to be beneficial since dedication always follows passion. Passion driven employees showcase the right attitude and share the vision with the entire team.

2. Responsible
The employee must be ready to take up responsibility for his work and strive to get work done without constant oversight. In a start-up, it is important that the employee has an understanding of the company’s vision and takes responsibility to reach the end goal. His past employment roles would help you judge his calibre. Providing guidance and direction to the employee from time to time is important too.

3. Desire to strive
An employee who thrives in a tough environment will be an achiever. Such employees show interest in various aspects of the business and readily deal with unexpected situations. These are the people who would not procrastinate and also accept criticism and their mistakes positively in order to improve and become better. When driven by desire to strive, be competitive and exceed expectations, you’re sure to find the will to work hard.

4. Adaptable
Start-up environment provides an immense opportunity for the employees to explore various aspects of the business due to its relatively small size. While roles may be defined, all employees eventually land up contributing to every function initially. Start-ups lack organisation of processes in its initial phase which calls for all employees to be able to adapt to the ambiguity in processes and procedures. Multitasking would be a valuable skill set and would aid to handle the multi faceted job responsibility in a start-up.

5. Leadership
It is important to hire someone with leadership qualities who can bring about a positive change in the organisation. Having the right attitude could play a bigger role than having the right skills, because skills could be developed by training but the attitude of a person is not easy to change. The employee should also be creative to bring in innovation and have the self confidence to put forth his ideas. It is most important that the employee is friendly and able to keep up the atmosphere at the work place.

6. Honesty
In the professional world, honesty is not just the act of being truthful. Honesty means much more.  Employers strive to maintain their integrity in the professional world and a lot of it depends on the honesty of their employees. An honest employee would always accept criticism and also give credit where it’s due.
