Why Completion Isn't Good Enough
In 2016, employers cannot afford to hire someone to 'do the job' required. They must be smart and become forward-thinkers; acknowledging what has to be done in order to make a full impact in the organisation.
Someone has probably told you how much they hate their job, or something along the lines of "I have to go to work tomorrow..." To employers, this is like poison to the productivity and effectiveness of the organisation. Organisations don't have the time or money to spend on useless employees; or in many cases, under-performing employees (read my article here). We need to stay optimistic when supporting our teams within the organisation, but at the same time, we must be critical of the productivity and work ethic that is being delivered in return.
What is a Difference?
If you think about any organisation whether it be a finance company or a real estate agency; it is so important to outcast the average in every task that is completed. When individuals work in a team environment specifically, they tend to comfort each other's mindset with the average, and anyone that suggests doing more - or harder - work is often dispelled from the team.
Whether it be such a downfall to the team, the problem lies in the work ethic. And, if the team is not willing to provide the work ethic, chances are that you have the wrong team.

Where it becomes difficult to an employer is: 'Do I terminate one or all?' This question is asked all the time. The answer is that if you were to terminate one person's employment, the overhang of that fire (in most cases) will destroy the rest of the team. Conversely, if you take out the whole team, you risk the financially and timely costs involved in recruitment.
