Professional relationships don’t always work out as planned. Even the most qualified of recruits might have glaring issues with their personality, work ethic or other traits that simply don’t align with the goals of your company. Automation Personnel Services understands this. As one of the largest staffing firms in U.S., we pride ourselves in matching up all our clients with top talent in the industry. There are times that clients feel the need to replace a new hire. Automation recommends that all employers watch out for the following red flags that might indicate it’s time to replace an employee.
Lack of Interest
Automation Personnel Services recommends that all of your employees, whether temporary or permanent, show some amount of interest in their job and the success of your company. Your success ultimately depends on the productivity of your staff, so it’s important to keep your employees interested and engaged at all times.
This is easier said than done. Those who have held menial tasks for extended periods might get the idea that they’re stuck in a dead-end job. If this is the case, it might be time to replace them with someone who is fresh, energetic and motivated.
Ineffective Time Management
Valuable employees need to have good skills in time management. While this is obvious in temp-to-hire roles where the worker is trying to prove their worth, even menial and laborious tasks need effective prioritization and management. If one or more of your employees aren’t able to manage their time appropriately, you’re probably better off searching for a replacement sooner rather than later.
You’ll also want to place a lot of value in the integrity of your staff. Honesty, trustworthiness and the ability to go above and beyond their daily responsibilities can tell you a lot about an employee. Conversely, the lack of these traits serves as a red flag that shouldn’t be ignored.
It’s impossible to run a successful business if your team is constantly underperforming. Employees who miss quotas or regularly show up late for work can affect the morale of their teammates. It’s better to recognize this issue as soon as possible so you can take steps to correct the issue. This might result in replacing some of your lowest performers, but it will give you the chance to try out some new employees on a temporary basis.
This highlights another benefit of using Automation Personnel Services. We maintain a comprehensive pool of top talent, most of which is available at a moment’s notice to fill in where needed.
Making the Move Sooner Rather than Later
It’s never a good idea to keep a struggling employee on your staff. Even if your team is struggling to meet production demands or timelines, introducing new employees who are unmotivated and uninterested will only have a negative effect on your productivity. Making a move sooner rather than later lets you begin the search for new talent while giving your ex-employee the chance to resume their job search immediately.
