Why are US employees good employees?

US employees are good workers for a variety of reasons. Work culture is very strong in the US, and American workers typically take very little vacation and paid sick leave. They are generally very energetic, driven and committed individuals, and are an asset to any company.

If you’re thinking of expanding your business to the USA, you’ll be glad to hear that US workers are great employees. This is true for a number of reasons.

Firstly, US workers have a strong work culture. Americans define themselves by the occupations, and they frequently work far longer weeks than their European or UK counterparts.

Secondly, US workers are good employees because they have a pioneering and opportunistic attitude: they’ll work hard for a cause they believe in, and go the extra mile to do a good job. They’re enthusiastic, direct with communication and demonstrate an excellent can-do attitude.

Thirdly, American workers typically take very little holiday or paid sick leave. That’s because the USA does not have hard rules about the minimum number of days of paid sick leave or vacation time an employee is entitled to, resulting in US workers taking less time off work than UK or European workers.
