Deadbeats suck the life out of everyone around them. They may sometimes be hard to identify, and they’re even harder to publicly label once found.
But the blogger behind “HR Fishbowl” says that deadbeats impact the productivity and “cultural fortitude” of an organization.
According to the blogger, you’re a deadbeat employee if you:
- Blow off company events.
- Ignore internal and external press about your organization.
- Take little interest in what your co-workers’ long-term aspirations are—professionally and personally.
- Bad-mouth your employer in public.
- Couldn’t spout off at least one interesting fact about every co-worker you’ve ever worked with.
- Refer to your employer as “the” company rather than “our” company.
- Volunteer for nothing.
- Refuse to accept employment as a two-way proposition.
What do you think? Are these the qualities of a deadbeat co-worker? Or are the HR Fishbowl’s expectations way too demanding? Let us know at admineditor@BusinessManagementDaily.com.
