Every workplace and every business has processes. They are an efficient way to transform the energy of the employees into meaningful output and measurable outcomes. That’s how the business moves forward.
We pay employees to get their work done. Job retention is subject to job performance. There is a whole apparatus arrayed around that designed to remind everyone that they have “work to do” and just get it done.
Everyone makes mistakes. All the time. The difference in an organization is that those whose mistakes have huge impact are usually in a position to hide them. Everyone else below them is transparent and subject to being censured.
