Cyprus has just been accepted to join the European Union. It is essential, therefore, for everybody in Europe to have an accurate perception of the Cypriot labor force. Employee characteristics are identified in an attempt to improve performance, reduce dissatisfaction and manage the workers more efficiently. This study attempts to describe the characteristics of typical Cypriot employees as seen through the eyes of their managers. Primary data collected from questionnaires distributed to managers of large organizations are used for the analysis. Frequency distributions, cross tabulations and factor analysis have been used to analyze the primary data collected. Female managers, older managers and public sector managers utilize similar strategies for managing their workforce. Cypriot employees have been identified to have high levels of ability/initiative, are self‐important and arrogant, highly materialistic and group oriented.
