What Type of Employees Do You Want in Your Organization?

by Debbie Ruston, Featured Contributor

I READ an article recently talking about employee retention.  There was a comment made about mature workers that are “more likely to stay with you due to financial obligations and the difficulty in finding new jobs as one ages”

repost-us-image-9889475This is a valid point, but why would you want anyone with this criteria?   This describes a person that has settled in life, doesn’t realize they have choice or a voice and will likely not bring anything of value to the table in the way of innovative new ideas.

There is a big difference between the person like this and the person that decides on a job and hangs their hat there for years because they are engaged and fulfilled in their work.  They are not there because of financial obligations or fear of not finding another job.  They are there because they want to be….they believe in the company, the people and the purpose and they want to play a role in making a difference.  They are not looking for where the grass is greener…they are happy and fulfilled where they are.

In hiring it is equally important to know what not to look for as well as what you prefer.

  1. Hi Debbie,
    I have had all kinds of employees over the years and find that a mix is usually the best. There are mature employees that still are driven to compete with the young ones and they can be a great asset to help “take them under their wings” and teach them some skills that can accelerate a younger employee. It ends up a win win in that situation.

  2. Hi Bob
    Although this can be true, you can have 2 equally talented people, with equal skills and knowledge. One has to have the job just to pay their bills, the other wants the job because they are passionate about the company, product, mission, and want to make a difference and make their contribution. Which employee would you rather have?
