Here are three things Matt looks for in hiring prospective employees:  

(1) Work Ethic 

The first thing Matt looks for is people who have a strong work ethic. This means they have an internal motor that is fueled with the values of working hard, determination, and desire. The bottom line is that a good employee will be one that is willing to work hard.  

(2) Positive Attitude

Your attitude says everything about you and your ability to perform at a high level. Having employees with positive attitudes in the workplace is a key ingredient to building healthy, productive teams. Employees that have a positive mindset are employees that are engaged in their work. 

(3) Talent

Matt’s been successful as an entrepreneur and business executive because he is a talent-seeker. Employees that are talented in their craft can adapt and learn quickly. This helps move the business forward. Talented employees who are difference makers are exactly who you want in your workforce.
