How to Find Your Best Employees and Keep Them Around

As we grow up, we are praised for the things we do; whether it be learning to tie our shoes, or being able to recite the alphabet, or grade on a test. As we move into the workforce, some expect the praise to continue and if we are not praised, we can feel we are stuck in an non-thankful position and may look elsewhere to fulfill the need for praise. Even just to be verbally recognized publicly can fulfill that need.

Key Takeaways:

  • We are often quick to judge someone’s job performance
  • It’s so terribly easy to say “He is a bad employee.” It’s a little less likely to hear someone say “She does her job really well
  • According to Globoforce, the No. 1 reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated

“good employee has a set of distinctive characteristics in addition to specific work related knowledge. While different jobs require different skill sets you can be pretty sure that all good employees have a recognizable similarity in their mindsets.”
