Human beings are some of nature’s most gifted long distance hunters. In hunting tribes which hunt on foot, people in the tribe from the oldest to the youngest all outdistance the animals to catch their prey. Now, this is true for many different tribes the world over, and notice that we did not say that they outrun the animals. Rather, they outdistance them. By merely having more stamina than the animals, they are able to run them into the ground, quite literally.
Humans are known for being able to run strong and run long, in both a literal sense and a figurative sense.
They have far reaching talent in both stamina and non-stop endurance testing, and this translates into superb outdistancing hunting skills. We’re not even talking about using long distance rifles or anything like that. This is just a form of wearing the animal down.
As we look at what we are willing to endure in the workplace, we see some similarities with these foot hunting tribes. We see that we are willing to work overtime if we can get double or triple paid overtime. We see that we are willing to work labor intense jobs if it guarantees a certain lack of politics and a high paycheck. When it comes to bringing home the bacon, we are ready and willing to run long and run strong.
However, much of this is destroyed when we have coworkers who toke up during their lunch break or bring alcohol to drink during their break periods. Their sheer laziness doesn’t only annoy us, it makes us lose faith in our long term financial goals and plans. It makes us dread going to work and being around these types of people. You are attempting to be a money magnet, but their behavior is degrading and disrespectful.
Protect your employees from being around these kinds of workers by using CMM Technology’s drug test equipment and alcohol breathalyser tests in your drug testing program. We even have a breathalyser recalibration service which is accredited by NATA. All of this is meant to bring your business in line, not only with its own company policies, but with your company’s financial goals, too: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
