Whether it’s a start-up, mid-sized business, or a well-established conglomerate, employees come first; but how do you get the right employee?

Talent acquisition isn’t everyone’s cup of tea; hence, we’ve jotted down a few pointers on how to get the best of the best, by none other than the master himself:

Vision: A prospective employee’s vision must be in line with the company. He must be passionate about the way your company does business, and be focused on his career.

Multi-tasker: In today’s fast-paced, dynamic business world, an employee must be skilled in different facets. He must be able to handle multiple tasks at a time, and complete them with ease. ‘Jack of all trades’ sums up what one needs to be.

Goal Oriented: Staff members must have a goal and the zeal to achieve it.

Team Player: This is one of the most vital aspects while hiring a new recruit. One must gel around with fellow employees in order to maximize his potential, as well as the company.

Committed: The staffing company or firm must ascertain how committed the prospective employee is. He must be someone who works on a long-term basis, rather than just job-hopping.

Company Culture: The way in which the company works is something employees must be willing to adapt to.

Risk takers: ‘No risk, no gain’ is a policy employees must be willing to follow, if their job profile permits.

Enthusiasm: If an employee isn’t enthusiastic about his job, he isn’t going to give it his all.

Proactive: An employee must be proactive rather than reactive.
