When your bottom line is hurting and your all important performance culture is crumbling in the face of slack employee behaviors….have you ever thought of taking a break?
Probably not. When the heat is on, most people tend to react by over stretching, putting in more shifts, tripling office time and everything else that comes with it. But in almost all the cases, when a company is in trouble….its in trouble because of its employees. And when the performance is slacking, the reason may not be employee’s lack of good intention, but simply a lack of proper de-tox time. And also before going gung-ho on the next big organizational project, everyone needs to have a cooling off period. Everyone needs a time off. A vacation.
So next time when you are thinking about increasing your organizational performance, just check whether your employees are vacationing properly.
