Psychology has made us understand the concept and the meaning of ATTITUDE as the expression of favour or disfavour towards a person, place, thing, or an event.
In the case of employees your expectations to your employer on your attitude can be hard to understand because employers do not only want you to do the job, but to care about it. They also seek people who will take upon themselves more than what is actually expected or required.
Mostly your new colleagues will expect you to approach the job with an open mind, so you can quickly learn what you need to do it well.
There has always been this rhetorical question about what actually makes a good employee?
The response may differ from manager to manager and company but one constant holds true – employers want employees who are dependable, trustworthy, and good at all their jobs.
Great employees share certain characteristics and these are the ones that employers seek above and beyond the ability to fill a job description.
*Employers want employees who demonstrate dependability
Certain core expectations are required for all jobs, but dependability is probably at the top of the list. Employees show dependability by taking personal ownership of all aspects of their job including being to work on time, dressing and working in a professional manner and demonstrating a high level of commitment.
Dependable employees turn out to be the managers favourite because they set and maintain clear expectations.
*Employers want employees who are self – motivated.
Self – motivation of the employees makes a huge difference to have an inner drive to organize their work versus one who needs constant guidance to perform day to day activities.
Employers look for employees that have a level of self- motivation that will not require a high level of “hand – holding” as well as the ability to tackle the expected obstacles that arise in a day to day business.
*More also, an employer want an employee who provide a positive representation of their brand.
Employers seek individuals that will enhance their organization and their brand. They want to recruit people who are trustworthy, have solid reputations both inside and outside of work and have a good work ethic.
*Finally, employers want employees who are team players.
No one can achieve “greatness” in an organization completely alone, and remarkable employees know this to be true. Employers think team players employers are the consummate team player who can highlight their town successes, as well as praise others for theirs.
These employees recognize that success is better achieved through team, work always.
