An engaged employee will notice when changes are required. They make recommendations and suggestions they feel will benefit the organization. Have you ever taken the lead by making a recommendation to your employer? Talk to the interviewer about a time when you suggested the workplace.
"I made a recommendation last month that we try a new line of parts after one of our particular vendors shorted us on inventory. The vendor that I suggested was newer to the industry. With that said, their customer service was impressive. Their pricing was competitive as well. We gave them a shot, and it worked out well for us, resulting in cost savings, a better product, and happier customers."
"I consistently make well-researched and well-backed suggestions to my current employer. They have a great open door policy which I like to utilize as often as possible. If I can be a help when it comes to process and product suggestions, then I feel that I am helping my company to be more profitable as well."
