South Jersey Biz is asking area business leaders about what makes them tick, by asking a new question each month.
This month we are asking: What do you look for in your employees besides simply doing a good job day in and day out?
MANAGING PARTNER, FRIEDMAN LLP
“At Friedman LLP, the key attribute we look for in our staff is the ability to work collaboratively and be a team player. Teamwork fosters individual creativity, new ideas and helps the organization as a whole.”
PRESIDENT AND CEO, CUMBERLAND INSURANCE GROUP
“One of the most important factors that we look for in employee performance is to value a team player who is willing to work in a collaborative environment. We realize that we are most effective as an organization and will obtain a greater likelihood of success in our decision making and strategy implementation with this approach.”
PRESIDENT AND CEO, TRIAD ASSOCIATES
“Triad Associates embraces a family culture and acts as a trusted advisor to our clients offering comprehensive services that enablecommunities to grow and thrive. To be a member of the Triad team, one must show initiative, pay strict attention to detail, demonstrate a willingness to go above and beyond, have a positive attitude, embrace teamwork and have compassion for those we serve.”
MICHAEL FISCHETTE, PE, CGD
CEO, CONCORD ENGINEERING
“Concord employees are repeatedly asked to communicate beyond what they think is normal. When you are aware of the team that exists around you, senior employees are more inclined to mentor and young employees latch on to a ‘guru.’ We have a mantraat Concord, ‘If I don’t connect with my client, I will find someone at Concord who will.’ No company our size has such a broad wealth of expertise, it’s all here. We do what we do best.”
