1.3 Outline why honesty, commitment, flexibility and accountability are key qualities to employers
Each group is to write one quality on their flipchart paper:

1. Honesty
2. Commitment
3. Flexibility
4. Accountability

Now discuss in your group and write down a description of this quality. Use examples if it helps. Each group will then move to the next three tables in turn (Round Robin) and complete the same task for each quality.


Honesty will earn trust and build team morale
Trust will enable you to become part of the team
It is important that people at work feel you will always tell the truth if there is an issue
Honesty will show that you are worth investing in, progressing and giving more responsibility
Honest staff won't cost the company time or money

Employers want staff they can trust to be accountable
They want individuals to account for their activities
Employers want individuals to accept responsibility for their activities
To disclose activities in a transparent manner.
Also includes the responsibility for money or other entrusted property.


Employers want to know you are dedicated to the job
It is important that they feel you want to stay in the job so they don't have to look for new staff
To employers it means being helpful and going the extra mile (like covering for sick colleagues)
They want the reassurance of knowing that you will spend your time at work doing the best you can for the company
Important that they feel you can be relied upon in difficult circumstances

Employers want staff that can get on with different types of people
If you are flexible you will be able to complete different tasks for the employer
Flexible people can deal with changes (to their role and regulations etc.)
You could be considered for progression which also benefits the employer
