  • Qualities of a good employee

    How are small business employees different from those that work in larger companies - how do you find ones that will work well in a small business setting?

    Re: Qualities of a good employee

    IMHO, a small business employee is one who is capable and WILLING to wear multiple hats, has self-start initiative, needs little supervision and can juggle well. How do you find them - well, they may typically find you. I have always felt that a corporate type (needs security, focus, benefits, etc. - or wants the power/prestige associated with climbing a big ladder) will not consider your job unless it is a person you already know. I have always been pretty good at interviews and reading people, so the ones who are just looking for a job typically "out" themselves in the interview and the ones looking to work and add value will shine no matter what size the business. Good luck!

      I think being a team player is the most important quality because all so often you have to play different roles and fill in for other team members if you are not flexible and do not accept that responsibility easily you will not survive long.

            We're talking about different definitions of team players. Most of the time in business a team player is considered to actually be part of a team and doesn't function well or completely when left to his/her own devices. What you described is considered an entrepreneurial attitude and, yes, is absolutely necessary in small companies. Without employees who are willing to do anything and everything they can, many small companies would never survive. However, as companies grow that entrepreneurial attitude gets pushed out and replaced by people who are more regimented team players.
