THE AMERICAN WORKFORCE

Filed under: — Doug Contreras @ 8:25 am on

Here’s my take on the American workforce:

  • 99% of all workers want to do a good job!
  • 99% of all workers can do a good job!
  • 99% of all workers will do a good job given the chance!

So what’s the problem?

I say bosses and managers fail on one or more of the following counts:

  1. They have not set standards for their workers;
  2. The standards they have set are not obtainable;
  3. They have not communicated standards to their workers;
  4. They do not systematically compare and report performance vs. standard for workers to see.

Remove the not from each of the above statements and watch the change!
