Initiative is important. People who take initiative act instead of react! They complete tasks without being told, spot opportunities and seize them, and they persist in the face of obstacles.
Businesses with people that take initiative reflect a proactive culture. A business or organisation is likely to become behind the times with a “we’ve always done it that way” attitude. Employee initiative can make a difference in many ways, including greater customer satisfaction, cost savings, new product ideas, and better problem-solving skills.
