When Employees Work Way Too Fast
Everyone wants to occupy quick and efficient employees who produce the maximum result in the minimum amount of time. But is it really possible for someone to work very fast and still be good? Of course, but the question is whether these people are only the exception. Sometimes these people rush into quick decisions regarding how a project should evolve and sometimes have the skills of a leader. Today, we will not focus on their active nature and their ability to become one of the company’s best employees in the future but on the negative part and see how someone should react when they have this kind of person in their team.
- Too much stress
Seeing a person who generally acts very quickly could be a sign of stress. Anxiety is over their heads, telling them to rush if they want to be safe. They are afraid that they will get fired or that others are way better than them at their job. Anxiety is problematic for two reasons when it comes to the result that someone will present at the end of the project. The first reason is that anxiety blurs our ability to think. The second reason is that it makes us become quicker, which leads to unpredictable mistakes. If you add them all up, you will see that the quality level is way lower than expected. Besides, having people with too much stress in a team will not only be an obstacle for them. Do not be surprised if they create problems for the rest of the team or if they quit because they feel overwhelmed with the job. They will not hesitate to leave you high and dry because their decisions are not driven by common sense but by emotions, and anxiety is the emotion of fear.
- They want to get over with it
Everyone has their own style of working. It is a matter of how we have been trained as a society to work. It is the fast-food culture. Many workers have the mindset that if they finish something earlier, they can leave the office earlier. Even if this is not allowed, they assume they will have the opportunity to take a longer break or rest somehow. They have not learned to do things slowly and right. The truth is that the way the brain functions, we are programmed to work based on rewards. ”If I do this now, I can do that later.” A simple mindset that sees things short-term. Superfast workers do not care about the quality of the outcome they will deliver, and this is why one should keep an eye on them. Of course, having a quick team makes you happy, but what happens when the time comes to present the project to the client? Will they be convinced about the quality of services that you as a company can deliver?
- They want to be quicker than their colleagues
Competition is the driving force in the workplace. Especially young employees who have not yet proved their abilities are eager to let their superiors know what they are capable of. They want to show off and stand out from the competition. An alarm bell rings that these people want a promotion. Here, the reward is not about leaving the office 30 minutes earlier. This is the category of people that see things long-term and are ambitious to succeed. They see future promotion as a reward for their persistent and precious efforts. Perhaps they should be rewarded at some point as long as they do not change their attitude and take things for granted.
- They have too much work
If you see an employee working like crazy and still underperforming, something has gone wrong. Considering that they work their full 8-hour shift, they should be able to work at a normal pace without having to rush into anything. It is the manager’s task to see the amount of work that has to be completed and what should be done to do it on time. If the number of employees hired in the department is not enough, the director will simply have to ask for some reinforcement. The employees who will work hard to manage a tight schedule are keepers. However, if you continue to put extra work into them, they will eventually get overwhelmed and underperform. Otherwise, you will see them one day walking out the company’s door because they found a better job and an environment where people respect their limits.
