It’s nice to be so well thought of by the other members! So I will take a stab at this one having worked in Retail Mgm’t. 16 yrs I worked with my team of 100 team members I only had 3 turn overs of which I fired only 1 and two other “problem personnel” walked out at my urging.
What you are referring to in Mgm’t is X & Y theory. Although at time time I don’t remember which is which. It was in course materials for Mgm’t training.
I was in the minority thinking employees were amongst the most valuable assets, providing the right employees were hired,trained,instructed and disciplined (when and if needed.
Upon those requirements employees are nearly invaluable. Turnover is one of the more costly aspects of a company. Training time can be significant depending on the complexity of the task. Turnover increases the chance of on the job injury as new employees are more “at risk” due to lack of experience. Stock loss is also more at risk. Stock loss being ruined product on an assembly line that isn’t up to par. Law suits are more likely as inexperienced workers not familiar with legal liabilities find themselves.
I am sorry I can’t argue the other side of the equation but I am told majority of managers take the opposite view. Perhaps that is why I always beat sales,safety and sanitation goals?
The Leftists have left us!
