    Paying Employees Too Much? How To Deal with an Expensive Employee

    I’m actually surprised at how often people ask the question: “What do we do when we find out we are paying people too much?” To answer that question you first need to ask yourself two important questions: 1) Have I properly defined the market for this position? 2) What type of performer is this employee? Paying employees too much is not something that most companies focused on becoming or remaining profitable for a long time can do without merit. Certainly, if the employee is a super star, you probably can afford to pay extra. But if they aren’t, it’s best to reign the spending in. This type of pay practice can actually put you out of business.

    How to Promote Positive Ethics in the Workplace


    Ethics is a fundamental business term because it can and does apply to all workplaces. Regardless of the organizational function, employees who fail to maintain an ethical standard in their workplace can raise the possibility of not only organizational corruption but also legal liabilities. In any role, it is vital that employees conduct themselves in accordance with both workplace policies, as well as applicable state and federal laws. The fallout of ethics failures can be seen daily on the news, i.e. Enron, and those colossal failures remind us that the collapse of workplace behavior ethics has the potential to damage and even destroy organizations.
