Every year, thousands of fresh graduates enter the labor force. By joining the already existing workforce, these graduates are trying hard to make the right decisions; decisions that may well shape the rest of their career as well as their future and that of their family.
One such decision they need to make is which potential employer to approach. In addition to determination and resilience, a good employer is a key to having a successful career. What makes a good employer is a bit hard to know for sure. It is even harder to judge an organization before even working there.
How does a firm create a great working environment for the employees and encourage a winning spirit?
A good employer creates an environment where people want to come to work and engages them to give their best.
A good employer attracts, recruits, develops and inspires great people. People who are happy and engaged in their work do a better job, which ultimately makes it easier for an organization to delight its customers.
