Remarkable employees are dependable, proactive, diligent, good leaders and good followers. They possess a broad range of easily-defined, but hard to find, qualities.
A few hit the next level. Some employees are remarkable, possessing qualities that may not appear on performance appraisals. But nonetheless, make a significant impact on performance.
Here are the ten top qualities of our remarkable employees.
They are personable and care about people
Our employees recognize the contributions of others. This is especially true in group settings where the impact of their words is even greater. They always demonstrate their interest in others and their team.
They don’t focus on job descriptions and love taking initiative
The smaller the company, the more important it is that employees can think on their feet. They must adapt quickly to shifting priorities, and do whatever it takes, regardless of role or position, to get things done.
When a customer has an issue, our remarkable employees know without being told there’s a problem. They jump in without being asked—even if it’s not their job.
Remarkable employees are humble yet very passionate about what they love
Our employees find strong egos very distasteful. They wear their passion 24/7. They can as quickly follow as lead and in all situations pay attention to being strong team players.
You want the great ones who are not afraid to fail
The last thing our people worry about is making mistakes or failing in a task. They understand risks and realize progress depends on going a little beyond. This is true even when they realize they won’t be right all the time.
Wood Home Care employees always demonstrate creative spirit and drive
Some people are rarely satisfied (I mean that in a good way) and are always tinkering with something.
Our employees follow processes. Remarkable employees find ways to make those processes even better. They are expected to, but they just can’t help it.
Our employees are good problem solvers
Their anticipation of issues keeps them thinking ahead on potential problems. They often have alternative options before problems arise. Most of them realize that the problem understanding is much more valuable than alternative solutions.
