We have our stars. We are always on the look out for them and make sure that when we find them they are rewarded. We expound their virtues to all who will listen and look to grow and develop them to be ready for the next opportunity. When they leave it is a great loss.
Then there are the non performers. They are the battle we want to win so we put a lot of effort into “rescuing” them and making them better or if we can’t win, moving them on. When they leave it is a great relief
Then there are the forgotten ones. They turn up everyday and do their job with no fuss. They allow the stars to shine and clean up the mistakes of the non performers. When they leave, they leave quietly and we don’t know what we have lost
Do you have any forgotten ones? What do you do for them?
Genuine recognition of what they bring and a simple “thank you” is often enough.
