A Hiring Manager’s Guide

Hiring managers are always looking for the best person to fill a position. But what happens when you’re not sure which of two equally qualified candidates to hire? How do you know who the better candidate is? One way is by understanding how different types of people will approach problems and tasks on the job. In this guide, we’ll take a look at eight personality traits that can help to hire managers to make an informed decision about which candidate would be suitable for their company:

1) Curiosity

2) Flexibility

3) Responsibility

Employees with responsibility are more likely to take ownership of tasks, which is vital for organizations that do best when everyone works together towards a common goal. These employees will keep doing what needs to be done until the job is finished and won’t be afraid to ask for help when they need it.

4) Social Skills

Employees with good social skills are generally more likable and tend to have higher workplace satisfaction because they feel their relationships with co-workers are productive and valuable.

5) Time Management Skills

Time management skills are essential for any employee, especially for managers or supervisors who need to ensure that everyone gets everything they need to get finished.

6) Positive Attitude
