Practicing good business ethics usually means the company is loyal to its employees. Also, look for a company that is socially conscious and charitable.


Stability

You want to search for a job that has security. You need to feel confident about where you work. No one wants to join a company where they're unsure if they will have their job tomorrow.

Can I trust they will look after me in case of an unfortunate event?


Work and life balance

Choose an employer with a healthy work-life balance. You should feel comfortable in your position. Choose a company that is flexible and is willing to work with you to help create the perfect balance. A company that understands you have a professional and personal life. Also, you should always inquire about hours worked or other duties outside business hours.


Growth

Can I learn and develop here? Search for a company that matches your ambition. A company that sets goals and achieves them while investing in its employee's personal and professional growth. A company that prides itself on celebrating employees who have been successful in achieving progression in their profession.


Company culture

Here are a few factors to look for. What is the company's mission? What are their policies? Is this company diverse? Are there good people working here? Is it an environment that promotes healthy competition? Is the dress code formal or relaxed? Does the Manager inspire you? Good leadership plays a big role. Bad leadership is often the reason good employees look elsewhere for work. What are the company policies?


Benefits

An attractive benefits package is a must. The package should include a pension arrangement, insurance, paid vacation time, paid sick leave, health benefits, death, and bereavement. Inquire about a competitive perks package as well. Consider bonuses, a company car, free food, and a good location.


Salary

Your salary should meet your minimum requirements to attain your desired lifestyle while also allowing you to save. Search for companies that can offer salary constancy in normal circumstances and a recession. To tell if a company can withstand hardships, research the company's hiring history. If a company is steadily hiring staff, it is dependably growing in revenue and expanding. If the company has a history of layoffs, stay away.
