It was a time of deep loss, psychological questioning and bitter in-fighting over leadership and business that would ultimately end in the band’s split.
Companies need to be aware not to become the Beatles with low performers playing the role of Yoko Ono’s in your high-performance teams.
From a better salary to a sense of purpose, there are many reasons why top performers leave for other opportunities.
A recent management survey reports that:
- 68% say low performers lower overall workplace morale
- 44% say low performers increase the work burden on high performers
- 54% say low performers contribute to a lack of initiative and motivation, resulting in a work culture where mediocrity is accepted
Based on the data results, companies may need to adjust their hiring processes accordingly. The cost of attrition is high, especially when it’s your high-performers who are leaving.
“Companies that do not address low-performance issues will likely weaken their culture and drive away their best people.” said Melissa Jezior, CEO of Eagle Hill
In Beatles lore, no person is as divisive or controversial as Yoko Ono, the lover and eventual bride of John Lennon, who arrived on the scene as the band was facing its toughest hardships.
