The right employee can be a real asset to your business and ensure that you offer great services and products to your clients. But it can be hard to know who the right person is that’ll fit into your organisation and be the best at their job. Here are some things that employers should look out for when they’re hiring a new employee.
- The right experience
Unless your role is an apprenticeship, or very junior, you’ll want someone with the right experience, which can be tough to find. It’s worth working with an agency with experience of recruitment Bangkok, so that they can do the difficult part of going through CVs and matching someone to the role.
- A personality that fits the role
There are some universal traits that most employees need:
- A good attitude
- Willing to go the extra mile
- Enthusiasm for the role
It can be hard to tell whether people genuinely have these traits, or whether they’re simply trying to impress during an interview, so be careful when interviewing them. Pay attention to how they speak about the job and previous employers, as this can often be a giveaway as to how happy they were.
- Their references
A lot of companies have given up on getting references, often mistakenly believing that other businesses only tell you the good stuff. But references from a previous employer can tell you a lot about a potential employee’s attitude and whether they’d fit in, so don’t skip this step.
- Their skills
Don’t just focus on the main skills for the role, look at what else is on their CV that could be useful in future. Of course, soft skills are often very important too, no matter what the role. From being able to communicate effectively, to working well in a team, you should look out for the small things that make a good employee. In fact, in some industries, it can be hard to find people who both have a talent for the work and have the people skills needed to do it effectively, so find employees who can offer you both.
Only you know what kind of person would do well in your organisation, but there are a number of signs that show that someone could be a good employee. From enthusiasm for the role to a glowing reference, it’s important to find that diamond who’ll fit into your team.
