Lazy employees better than productive ones for organizations?
A new book has claimed that lazy employees are actually valuable assets to an organization.
Melbourne: A new book has claimed that lazy employees are actually valuable assets to an organization.
According to ' Selfish, Scared and Stupid ' by Kieran Flanagan and Dan Gregory, the "lazy" yet results-driven employee tend to look for an easier way, will actively seek out the shortcut or try to save time, energy and resources and even have a minimum effort, maximum result mindset, News.com.au reported.
The book said that lazy employees are valuable because they question, they reinvent and innovate systems that make life and work simpler, easier, more efficient and faster. And in doing so, they change our world for the better, in contrary to the diligent ones who tend not to question, agitate or innovate.
The authors concluded that what people need today are employees who will constantly re-evaluate, rethink and adapt to the systems to the modern world of business and those who will constantly look for better ways to do what must be done.
