What traits do you look for in employees at Platinum Rapid Funding Group?
Good question! We ask this when coming to a final hiring decision. We want people that share the same three criteria – humble, hungry and smart! This idea was brought forth in a book by Patrick Lencioni called The Ideal Team Player. Great read, by the way!
For starters, we like our team members to be humble. Humbleness will go a long way in helping us to sufficiently serve our clients and weed out big egos. Big egos and confident team members can be an advantage in financial markets, but they must meet the other two criteria for it to work out for us.
Secondly, we are drawn to individuals that are hungry. Hungry employees are eager to learn and strive for greatness no matter what’s thrown their way. When you’re hungry, you’re passionate – you need the challenge! Hungry team members aren’t lazy and go the extra mile to get the job done.
Finally, we look for smart people – doesn’t everyone? Competence is important as you must be able to do the job. Employees must be knowledgeable and bring new ideas and creative strategy to the table all the while remaining humble and hungry. We can’t work with anyone that doesn’t meet all three of these traits.
