Identify your star employees

Checklist for identifying your most valuable employees.

At Numera we can advise businesses in the London area on many aspects of business life. This checklist will help you identify your star employees...

When it comes to contributing to the profitability of your business, can you identify your star employees?

Enthusiastic employees are what make a business stand out from the rest. Proficiency and skill are important, but it is only when they are combined with vigour and commitment that your business really starts to move forward.

To help you identify those employees who will champion your drive for improved profitability we have compiled this checklist.

Print the checklist and use it to evaluate your own employees.

How does each employee score?

Count the number of 'Yes' answers for each employee.

16 or more: This person is active, inspirational, and accountable, a real star employee. Don't let him or her get away!

10 -15: With proper coaching and management, this person can rise to greater responsibility within your organisation.

5-9: This person is tentative and perhaps uninspired, and might even make areas of your business vulnerable. Be wary of signs of improvement or further decline.

0-4: This person could be a serious impediment to profitability. You might want to ask yourself why you are continuing to employ him or her!
