When interviewing for a job, we often keep an eye out for red flags but it’s important not to get caught up in all that negativity. Instead, you should also look for aspects that the company has really nailed. ✅
And it’s really easy to determine if a company is a good fit for your goals by keeping an eye out for the following things 👇🏻
🟢 Satisfied employees
Perhaps the biggest green flag is the company’s ability to retain its staff and provide a healthy environment by recognising and crediting the employees for their efforts. The company should also support your career goals and provide you with the necessary training.
🟢 Workplace morale
If you walk into the office to give an interview and find the staff approaching you and smiling at you, that’s a definite green flag. In most cases, first impressions can help you determine how much you’ll like working there.
Workplace morale has a big impact on job satisfaction. Plus, with a healthy, friendly environment, your mental health won’t suffer and work will never feel like a burden.
🟢 Management skills
When the management is organized and efficient, employees are clean on their responsibilities and tasks, which ultimately affects the employees’ overall performance. If the interviewer seems to be interested in your abilities and communicates politely but effectively, that’s another green flag!
🟢 Work-life balance
If the company prioritizes the people, it’ll be very familiar with the work-life needs of its employees. Other things like the opportunity to work from home or flexibility in schedule are also signs of a good work-life balance.
And if managers or leaders regularly review their team’s workload to make sure there’s not too much on their plate, it’s definitely a good sign.
