Under Performing Employees and Team Members Hurt More Than Themselves

 





They Can Have A Negative Impact On Your Employees, Your Clients, And Your Company

 

What's The Problem?


Underperforming employees or team members can hurt both company morale as well as your bottom line, costing you time, energy and money.

An underperforming team member is not a resource because they see their jobs as little more than a paycheck. Their job is just a job. They never go above and beyond or take on tasks without being asked, putting in the minimal effort required and only going through the motions. They may get to work on time, but they also leave at the first possible moment. They are not invested.

 

 

3 Reasons Why Your Employees Underperforming

Not A Team Player

Your employee doesn’t get along with the rest of your team. Their peers are complaining that they’re difficult to work with. They’re not communicating effectively with you or other team members. Their behavior is having a negative impact on others in the workplace. They are not good at taking direction and aren’t coachable.

Too Many Personal Issues

Their personal issues are getting in the way of getting their work done. They call in absent more often than their co-workers. It’s difficult to count on them as they often need to take time off to deal with a personal issue. You’re frustrated as you can’t count on them doing what you hired them to do. And when they are at work they lack the ability to concentrate.

Poor Productivity and Work Standards

Your employee keeps missing deadlines, and it seems like it takes them forever to accomplish a task. They keep making mistakes as if they’re mentally checked out. The quality of their work keeps declining and you’re constantly asking them to do a task over again. They complain that they’re “swamped” and this is why they’re missing deadlines.

What Can You Do?


You’ve tried everything. You pay them well. Your business offers good benefits. You even have some fun perks. But nothing is working. When your employees are not performing at the top of their game, they’re compromising the profitability of your business.

The biggest problem you face is that your employees are disengaged–from their team members, from the businesses mission, and even from themselves.

With the high costs of employee turnover and lost productivity, disengagement poses a huge financial risk to businesses.

Retaining talent has challenged businesses for years, and the pandemic has only exacerbated the difficulty of doing so. Unforeseen shifts in the business world, like remote work environments, have provided workers the opportunity to reflect on their satisfaction and purpose in their current jobs.

As a result, many workers, including some of the most talented, have plans to leave their positions in the near future. The reality is that if businesses don’t begin to address the needs of their employees, they will not only lose money but also face severe labor shortages.
