What kind of employees do bosses look for?

What kind of employees are bosses looking for, especially during the current pandemic / lockdown phase?

Many people lost their jobs during the pandemic and are looking for new jobs. This gives rise to the need for standing out from others even more as you struggle to secure a job that fulfills your needs and is secure.

Here is a guide:

The best employees are those who can work independently.

The best employees are those who can work independently. This is true whether you have a regular job or are a freelancer / independent contractor.

Your boss may not always be able to guide you.

Especially as more and more work is being done remotely, to become a prized staff member, you will need independent thinking and self-motivation / self-initiation.

You need to be a self-starter.

If you see “self-starter” on a job description, that’s what it means.

You will need to be able to think on your own what needs to be done to achieve the organization’s goal, what is the best course of action to get the job done, and then get to work without having a micromanaged path outlined for you.

The aim is to get results.

What are the results your employer wants? What must you do to give them optimal results?How does your work fit in with the overall company vision? That’s the question you should be asking yourself everyday and then tackle the work independently.
