As an employee, you easily realise that your colleagues are different than you. There is someone who always sleeping on his/her desk, someone who is often late, or someone who seems like they never go home (arrived first in the office, but takes overtime).
It is always interesting to see so many types of employees in the office. Also, you can reflect yourself about which type of employee you are. Here are six common types of employees you often observe:
1. The ambitious one
Totally committed, motivated, and dedicated. They never go home, since they are throwing their life to the office. We can call them as office overachievers as well. This kind of employee is usually eager to take on new projects and tasks. Every task that given to them, the company can consider it is done.
As they put their best bet to achieve success, most employers appreciate their efforts. The ambitious one will always get a raise and a promotion. They are destined to climb up the organisational hierarchy.
2. The cheerleader one
They may not produce impressive works, but their existences inject a positive atmosphere in the office. With their perpetually positive attitude, this kind of employee can bring a good encouragement to keep up the company morale.
Any employer needs cheerleaders as office motivators, especially when things seem to be falling apart.
3. The leader
There must be someone who consider them as a leader in the office. It can be a position given from the company, or they just think they are. Other employees think they are bossy, or else, inspired by them.
A good leader in the office is good at delegating responsibilities to others based on his/her colleagues individual strengths. Every company needs someone who can manage it to achieve the best results when they are in trouble.
4. The grumpy one
They are always dissatisfied with the company new rules. Nothing we can do to make them happy, especially with the fact that they love to grumble in the office. Beware of them, since they can drag his/her colleagues down. In the end, this kind of employee is bad for the business as well as the company morale.
5. The materialist one
Simply, they only work for money. They will not produce impressive works. They come on-time (or a bit late), but leave early or exactly on-time. Actually, they don’t have enough interest in the job, as people can see on their lack of motivation to work.
6. The weak links
Or we can call them as the underperformers. They have never fully delivered their potential. They may show up to work each day, but what they do at their desk is absolute bare minimum. Also known as the doormat, as they keep quiet. They are afraid if someone notices their lack of contribution to the company success.
