Goal oriented and hard-working
What is it?
Work ethic is the belief that hard work is an obligation we have towards our employer. It includes the practice of working diligently to fulfill our responsibilities and deliver results.
Why is it important?
When employers are looking around the organization to identify high performing and high potential employees, work ethic is almost always part of the equation. Research suggests that in the long run, hard word outperforms raw intelligence. People who don’t work hard are simply not seen as high potential assets in the organization no matter how smart or brilliant they might be.
