How are small business employees different from those that work in larger companies - how do you find ones that will work well in a small business setting?

Re: Qualities of a good employee

IMHO, a small business employee is one who is capable and WILLING to wear multiple hats, has self-start initiative, needs little supervision and can juggle well. How do you find them - well, they may typically find you. I have always felt that a corporate type (needs security, focus, benefits, etc. - or wants the power/prestige associated with climbing a big ladder) will not consider your job unless it is a person you already know. I have always been pretty good at interviews and reading people, so the ones who are just looking for a job typically "out" themselves in the interview and the ones looking to work and add value will shine no matter what size the business. Good luck!

Re: Qualities of a good employee

I think being a team player is the most important quality because all so often you have to play different roles and fill in for other team members if you are not flexible and do not accept that responsibility easily you will not survive long.

We're talking about different definitions of team players. Most of the time in business a team player is considered to actually be part of a team and doesn't function well or completely when left to his/her own devices. What you described is considered an entrepreneurial attitude and, yes, is absolutely necessary in small companies. Without employees who are willing to do anything and everything they can, many small companies would never survive. However, as companies grow that entrepreneurial attitude gets pushed out and replaced by people who are more regimented team players.

To find a good employee, you do not have to spend a fortunate. Simply provide what you want in a clear manner and the right employee will get it done. A good employee is hardworking, proactive, highly motivated, result oriented and goal oriented.

I don't think there's such a big difference really. It all boils down to how hardworking a particular employee is over another. You can find such employees almost anywhere. You only need to motivate them, train them to be accountable for their own actions and conduct proper vetting prior to hire to make sure you are getting the right person.

A good employee is simply a lot of things put together. While some people can define a good employee by a set of different qualities or parameters, a great team member can be anything but lazy. They get stuff done and fully understand that they are to be held accountable should anything happen.
