Bad Employee or Bad Fit for Your Company?
Is there such a thing as a bad employee?
Yes, there is.
Is there such a thing as an employee who’s just a bad fit at your company?
Yes, there is.
How do you know if you have a bad employee or just a bad fit for your company?
Ah… that’s a little trickier! Good news is I’ve got some things to share with you that I think will help you make a better decision for yourself.
But I must let you know that until you have a systematic way of doing business at your company, your employees are at risk which puts you and your company at risk.
The only fair way for an employee to be judged good or bad is to have things documented in writing that helps your employees fill the box or boxes on your Org Chart. More than that, you also need to have the associated orientation process that gets them up to speed and provides the metrics they will be judged on. This coupled with never-ending training is the only way to give an employee the ability to step up and be a good-to-great employee at your company.
Tough news here…
