Returning to TeleTech was an important career changer for Diana Harto. Diana Harto began her career at TeleTech as a Human Capital Generalist in 1998 as the first person hired for the Moundsville facility.

Stress is a feeling of anxiety and pressure. This kind of feeling is experienced by most of us and is a natural part of our lives, especially at work. Studies conducted by The American Institute of Stress show that our job is one of the highest causes of stress. Employees experiencing stress in their jobs are one of the common reasons of attrition or poor performance. There are many factors that contribute to stress. Common examples are; deadlines, workloads, new tasks, new boss, new team, etc. According to Wikipedia.Org, "often a stressor can lead the body to have a physiological reaction which can strain a person physically as well as mentally. A variety of factors contribute to workplace stress such as negative workload, isolation, extensive hours worked, toxic work environments, lack of autonomy, difficult relationships among coworkers and management, management bullying, harassment and lack of opportunities or motivation to advancement in one’s skill level."

What makes a great employee varies greatly from position to position, employer to employer. Yet I have observed one trait that seems to be valued in employees, no matter what the pay grade.

It is not about creativity, though employers definitely appreciate a creative thinker.
