    More often, it has been observed that hard working employees are subject to more and more work given that they have the ability to deliver and meet tight deadlines. On the contrary, incompetent co-employees tend to pretend to be naive just for the sake of not performing the work with a view to delegating the work to the dedicated and hard working employees.

    What is more, there are incompetent supervisors/immediate superiors who compel their immediate juniors to perform all their work and they themselves spend time talking at the reception area or in the mess room. Whenever, employees go for greener pastures, their work are assigned to the already burdened employee.

    This is a very serious problem as it impacts negatively on the health, attitude and social life of those employees who are burdened with excessive workload. One should not forget that today they are being unjust to hard working people but tomorrow will be the turn of their wards. What you sow today is what you will reap in the future. So those people, beware….!

    One consequence of this is that those hard working people could be less productive in the long run or simply choose to move to other organisations.

    Potential Solutions:
    1. Proper planning and monitoring of workloads;
    2. Think humanely and adopt an attitude of fair and equal distribution of work

    1. Reduced labour turnover
    2. Less frustrated and stressed workforce
    3. Increased level of productivity
    4. Juniors respecting their immediate superiors

    So true indeed. Very pertinent point raised. This is the case in parastatal bodies actually. Authorities need to take actions against such practices. I would encourage more people to submit their experiences and to raise their voices against such people.

    I condemn such acts by insensitive people. This is the height of injustice.
