5 Things That Make a Company Somewhere Worth Working

Posted by Tilt Recruitment on July 8, 2022

Regardless of the industry that you work in, you are bound to have multiple businesses offering similar roles and deciding which is the best company to work for can be tough. To help you out, and to ensure that you work for a reputable and respected company, we have listed five key things that make a company stand out for all the right reasons.

 

5 Signs of a Good Company

 

  1. A Straightforward and Smooth Interview Process – You can tell a lot about a company by their interview process, and it’s possible to get an idea of how you will be treated as an employee by how the interview goes. If a company struggles to create a smooth and straightforward interview process, it’s likely that they might struggle to create a smooth and straightforward workplace. If a company goes above and beyond to impress you in an interview, it’s likely that they will go above and beyond to keep their employees happy. It’s important to pay attention to the interviewer’s tone and temperament, and how enthusiastic they are when they talk about the company and the work they do.

 

  1. They Invest in Employee Development – Working for a company that invests in employee careers is hugely beneficial, especially if you are hoping to further your professional development during your time there. Not only does employee development benefit you personally in terms of promotions and moving to other companies, but it also makes you want to stay at the company for longer. Hearing about employees working at the company for many years and being promoted into better roles is a good sign that the business invests in employee development. It highlights that they are willing to invest in their own employees, rather than simply hiring from elsewhere.

 

  1. They Pay Attention to Employee Feedback – Even the best companies to work for make some mistakes along the way, but it’s how they rectify these that matters. Instead of ignoring or glossing over any missteps, it’s important for a company to pay attention to employee feedback and make the necessary changes. A lot of problems can’t be solved immediately, but it says a lot when a company turns to its employees for advice and input. It shows that when working there, you are likely to have a say in how the business is operated. Listening to employee feedback shows that a company is willing to improve the workplace in ways that benefit those who are there day in and day out.

 

  1. They Make an Effort to Build Employee Relationships – It’s rare that you work completely alone at work, and even solo projects are often part of something much bigger. This is why it’s important to like who you are working with on a professional level. Though you don’t need to become close friends with everyone at work, nor do you need to socialise outside of the workplace, having a strong working relationship is important. A company that is worth working for is one that will help you to build these working relationships. This can be done by them organising team building activities or bringing the team together regularly for in person meetings.

 

  1. A Professional and Welcoming Office – A company’s office environment can have a big impact on how much you enjoy working there, which is why asking to look around the workplace before accepting a job is recommended. It will give you a good insight into the day to day running of the company, as well as showing you what you can expect on a daily basis. A grey, boring and impersonal office could mean that the company itself doesn’t put much weight on employees being themselves at work. Similarly, a messy office could indicate a lack of organising and care from those in charge. Positive things such as team achievements being celebrated, decorations, happy staff, bright colours and posters can make a big difference to how much you enjoy going to work every day.
