Things don’t always turn in your favor, though. No matter how stringent your hiring process may be, sometimes, just one interview is not enough to assess a person and to be sure that he or she will be a great. Also, some people are not what they portray themselves as in the interview. It is not your fault, really. There is no need to blame yourself at all. What you should do is, however, scan through your employees from time to time, and get rid of a few who are not helping your business in any way. Remember that the competition today is very tough and you simply can’t afford to put up with inept employees.
Here is a list of employees who simply have to cut loose:
Honestly, don’t you already have enough troubles to sort through and enough problems to manage? Do you really need employees who add to the trouble and make things worse? If you notice that an employee is causing more trouble than merit, you should let him go. Immediately.
There are a few employees who have an oversized head. If their achievements are proportional to their ego, may be you can put up with their abnormally large head and big mouth. But if you have employees who speak too much but never deliver or who make huge promises and never keep them up, you should show them the door.
The Rude Ones
Whether you are a startup or an established company, your customers are your backbone. If you have rude employees who don’t understand the value of customers and takes them for granted, you will have absolutely no customers after a point of time. There is no room for bad attitude in a business especially with customers.
You pay your employees to do the job. If they can’t do the job or if they are not doing the job, you should fire them. Simple. Give them a chance or two may be but if they remain the same, you should bid them goodbye.
The Rule Breakers
You should never put up with someone who breaks rules, does not follow the company’s culture, and takes workplace ethics for granted. Such employees will only ruin the atmosphere of the workplace and make things unbearable for other employees.
If you have employees who fit any of these criteria, you know what you should do with them.
Some employees just need to be fired because they just mooch money off you and never bring achievements. These include the rule breakers, the rude ones, the incompetents, the troublemakers, and the egotists.
