An employee whose behaviour fits the job requirements experiences less stress and is more productive.
Extensive research has shown that not only do people feel uncomfortable in a job that is significantly different to their behavioural profile, but they are more likely to take more time off work for “illness,” be more accident-prone on the job, and have a lower productivity rate than if they were working in better matched role.
If you have someone working in a role that is significantly outside their preferred style of working, does it mean they should be fired?
It does mean there should be more discussion between managers and employees regarding job roles. Perhaps there can be adjustment in the manner in which the job is completed, or perhaps there are some modifications of the job which could be made so they can function more effectively.
