Attitude Is Not Always an Indicator of Productivity

An article posted on the Human Resources Networking Group site, brought to light many good points regarding the need to review outside influences and factors, in addition to performance, when dealing with what are perceived as difficult employees, or “Bad Apples”. A lot of employers assume that if an employ has a poor attitude, or is difficult then they are a trouble maker, and should be let go from the company. This article discusses the fact that maybe they are creating waves within the company because they are more productive then others and this is frustrating to them, or maybe they are not good in a group environment, and may be better suited in an environment in which they can work by themselves. Be careful because the friendly employees who get along with everyone might not be making the company profitable.
