By hiding when something goes wrong or when you make a mistake, you may cause more problems for yourself down the line…and then again, you may actually come up with a very real, very usable solution which can be implemented on a regular basis. What are the benefits of hiding? Is the coward’s way out? Is it really that beneficial or that detrimental?
Anthropologically speaking, many people have found hiding to be beneficial, especially when they are faced with life threats which can be completely circumvented and avoided by hiding. However, hiding in one place forever may not be a good solution, as far as being hunted goes, because eventually the predator may come across your path, and they may find it very helpful to simply sniff the air. If you have been in one place for a long time, then your scent is very strong in that location, which makes it all the more likely that the hunter will find you.
So yes, hiding is beneficial, but hiding in the same place for long periods of time may not be.
What about this can be applied to civilized society? Well, for one thing, being subversive and staying out of people’s minds is a good way to be easily forgotten and passed over, if that is your real intent. Another way this can happen is through the use of sleight of hand or other subversive techniques meant to distract people from what you are really doing.
The problem with having drug abusers and alcoholics bring their abusive behavior to the workplace is that addicts tend to be great liars, and you may or may not know if any of them are really sober when they arrive at work. Therefore, you may consider implementing a form of employee drug testing, and using the drug test equipment from CMM Technology. Also, we provide alcohol breathalyser devices, and NATA accredited recalibration services for those devices. That’s a pretty sweet deal, and it will go well with your employee drug testing program which is already in place.
