Eugene, Oregon, June 9, 2017 – Express Employment Professionals, one of the leading staffing agencies in Eugene, OR, released new survey results today revealing traits that are most important to businesses when hiring job candidates.

In a survey of 1,030 businesses, respondents were asked to “rate the following traits in order of importance when hiring a candidate with 1 being least important and 5 being most important.”

“Work ethic/integrity” topped the list, with an average rating of 4.60, followed closely by “attitude” at 4.57, according to the employment agency in Eugene, OR.

“Communication” was the only other trait with an average rating greater than 4. “Culture fit,” “critical thinking” and “consistent work history,” followed with “job experience,” “education” and “references” rounding out the bottom three.

Full results are below.

"Any worker can be taught how to do the job, but not every worker has the attitude, drive, and work ethic needed for day to day business activities," said Pat Murphy, franchise owner of the Eugene Express office. "Our clients need to know that their hires have the integrity and motivation to go above and beyond. These are traits that will never be undervalued."

The survey of 1,030 businesses, which are current and former clients of Express Employment Professionals, was conducted in March 2017 to gauge respondents’ expectations for the second quarter of 2017. Previous surveys were conducted to cover job insights of the quarters indicated.
