• It’s not always easy to judge your own performance at work.
• In fact, sometimes, you might be underperforming and not even realise it.
• If several of these subtle signs that you’re a subpar employee apply to you, consider moving to a role that’s a better fit for you.
Some employees are better than others, but what if you’re the problem worker in your office?
Being a terrible employee doesn’t mean that you’re bad, lazy, or even unable to succeed professionally. You could be a bad culture fit for the company. Your disposition may not jibe with your boss’ style. Maybe you’re just in the wrong industry.
If you feel that you’re not doing a good job, then it’s important to consider why and then take steps to rectify the situation.
Before you can do that, though, you’ve got to be able to determine whether or not you are a bad worker.
Here are several tell-tale signs that you’re doing a horrible job at work:
You’re not punctual
You constantly make excuses
You do the bare minimum
You love to gossip
You’re convinced you’re smarter than everyone else
You don’t believe in your company’s mission or values
You think your company’s goals are dumb. You think your organisation’s CEO is stupid.
I don’t know, maybe you’re right. But if you’re truly unimpressed with your company, then instead of wasting your time on snark, you should start looking for other work.
You’re noticeably less productive than your colleagues
You’re always looking for a way out
You don’t get along with anyone at the company
