Every employer in the world wants a simple thing, that simple thing is: a productive employee. In most cases the employees are productive but the team lead or the employer fails to recognize that. It is mainly due to the fact that employees often do not feel comfortable with their work environment most of the time they are just reacting to a stimulus and seldom do they take initiatives.
Since very few actually take initiatives the general idea regarding a productive employee is the one who takes initiatives. However in all truth there are several attributes attached to a productive employer, in this blog we will try to uncover 5 of those. These are the attributes that we at Staff Timer App believe to be the ones that really seperate a good resource from an average one. So you might disagree with a few, but before you do that you need to go through the list:
- Do things on their own
Even though this is not the only attribute that defines an employee’s productivity but it really is the one that distinguishes an employee from the rest. A productive employer prays for these kinds of employees. The ones who do not require attention they keep on doing work and research and make stuff happen. An initiative employee is an asset to be relished, they take initiatives and take risks. There is always a chance of a great hiccup or failure but, self direction makes them find their own solutions to the problems they face. In short a handy asset.
- Consider criticism as feedback to grow forward
Another identity plot is being open to feedback and incorporating that feedback. This is perhaps the most important employee attribute there is. Mostly employees do not take feedback and dub it as criticism, which in a few cases might be true, but mostly it is not. For an employee to grow it is important that they remain open to feedback even if it is criticism. This supposed criticism will help you grow as an employee and do better every time.
- Doesn’t waste time
Time wasting is hated by everyone the same, no one likes or considers results if they require too much result. So time management is an attribute that makes a productive employee standout. Slacking about and wasting time on coffee breaks is not appreciated anywhere and if you want to grow, you might as well want to dial it down a bit.
- Always moving forward
An employee is only as good as their goals, if their goals are not big they will not take your organization to the next step. A growth oriented employee will have a positive vibe with them and they will at all cost look towards the positive sides of the things. It is good to have someone goal oriented that would keep your organization hustling.
- Communicative and leadership
This is perhaps the biggest skill you can ask for in an employee , for them to be communicative and to also showcase leadership qualities. The only issue is that there is a little line between leadership and intrusion. Make sure to not to cross that line.
- Project and product ownership
As an employee it is all null and void if you are not owning things up. An employer wants the best asset that could be trusted with long term projects. A truly productive employee will not only be an asset of need but also would take ownership of projects. The entirety of the above predicament lies within this one quality. If your employee takes ownership of your project, trust us you are in real great hands.
Ever since we have entered the dawn of employee monitoring the productivity of and employee needs measuring. The results do matter but effort needs to be acknowledged also Staff Timer App believes in acknowledging the faces behind success. A truly productive employee can be anyone from the marketing guy to the bloke working in the kitchen or running around with files. All that matters is how do you make an average employee into an asset that would change your organisation, and everyone can be that.
Every company or an organisation irrespective of their size looks for the best possible resources. They choose their employees on the vibe they offer. So after an employee is hired they try to live up to the expectations they sell in an interview. Mostly the employees fail in doing so and their career is cut short, however the truth is it is the duty of the Team Leader or the Owner to make sure they get the best out of their asset. After that they judge people on the basis of the results they provide. Some employees perform outstanding while others remain just above the curve. There cannot be a single criterion to judge an employee upon. Every person has different abilities and works better in different situations.
