Good Employees Get the Good Jobs

Employers like employees who work hard and do a good job. Most employers promote good employees by giving them a better job. A better job usually pays more. So, what makes a good employee?

  • Good employees take initiative. There is a big difference between an employee who does things on his or her own and one who has to be told what to do all the time. An employee with initiative finds things to do to keep busy. An employee with initiative learns new things to do the job even better.

  • Good employees take responsibility. When given a task, they do a good job. They thoroughly complete the task. They are proud of their work.

  • Good employees understand the finances of the business. They understand getting paid depends on the business making money. They know they need to do their part to make sure the business makes money.

  • Good employees keep their commitments. If they say they are going to do something, they get it done.

  • Good employees know that customers are important. A good employee takes time to ask people how they are doing.

  • Good employees do their jobs cheerfully, even if they don’t like some tasks.

  • Good employees work hard all the time, not just when the boss is watching.

  • Good employees always do a good job.

  • Good employees do more than they are asked. They do more than is expected.
