    Performance or discipline, which takes a preference?

    It is appraisal time in my office and as a new boss I am facing a tough choice. I have one employee who is an exceptional worker but lacks discipline and on the other hand I have worker who is good in both aspects. Which one should I give an increment to?

    Hi buddy

    You should try and give increment to both of them as both of them are good in their work and thus are very good assets for your company. But if you really are forced to make a choice then you should definitely give the increment to the employee who is both good in his work and is also disciplined . Being disclipined is as important as being a good performer and you need both these qualities in the right amount to become successful in your career.

    Being disclipined shows your upbringing and that how responsible you are in your work. Also it shows your morals and manners . This is certainly a quality of a good employee and thus the employee with both the qualities deserves the increment. But of course you should not let the other employee feel dejected. Call him to your office and tell him it was a very tough competition between the two of them but he lost due to lack of discipline. Tell him to improve on his weakness and the next time he is sure to get the increment. I hope he gets inspired and goes in the right direction.

    Good luck

    Hello ,

    Performance and discipline go hand in hand .
    If you are disciplined and act responsible in what ever work you do ,
    your performance automatically enhances .


    Both need to be present in any employee to excell in a work place .
    Discipline will make him puntual , responsible , well behaved in the work place . He will not be distarcted with whats going on
    around him , this directly affects his performance .

    A person who has the potential but lacks discipline will never be able to reach that peak that he could have .
    Being disciplined makes you a good performer , which everybody looks upto .

    No one can trust a person who performs but cannot be puntual , is not disciplined . You would not like to work with
    such a person .


    • One should try to develope both these qualities because without the other , you will always lack something .
    • being disciplined is more important as it shows your personality your attitude towards others .

    SO these two things go togther , it should not be seperated .

    Thank you !

    Hello,

    Definitely I will suggest you the second option.This is because discipline and performance are interlinked.One can reach upto a certain extent with his hardwork.But in order to reach the peak ,the edge can only be possible if that person is disciplined.An undisciplined person will find it really difficult to manage big responsibility and may lose his track.But a disciplined person is sure to succed with his hard work.Dont be biased.Give it to the person who deservs it the most.This will also inspire the other employee also to be disciplined so that he can get it next time.

    Dear both things are the best and most necessary to be followed in the office premises because if you would be under the discipline then you would be called as an official person in the office premises and if you would respect others then they would also give you enough respect which is important for you and when you would get the respect then you would feel better among all the employees and it would be a great effect at your working performance because when a employee work in a fee and happy mood then he/she provides best to the company and contribute more and more because they thinks that when the company is providing enough response for them and providing each and every facility with a free minded and friendly working environment then why should not we contribute the best to the company that is why but still if you boss is asking for both things then you should not worry because you are a experienced employee in the office premises and you know everything well and still if you are working hard for the company and giving more than enough then you do not need to care about the performance and be simple, candid, modest and disciplined so that you could get the response from your boss also and he could praise you to the CEO of the company and you should avoid some few things in the discipline which are as - Using Mobile Phones in during working hours, talking each other employees unnecessarily during working hours for a long time, yawning on the computer, not following the instructions of the company and the manager, not providing enough respect to each other so that you have to care about these small things and these small things would make you high in the company

    All the best

    dear friend as per your expression it transpire that both are good one is exceptional regarding professional line and others are good in discipline as well as in work.So far our knowledge goes without proper discipline nothing can run and besides except talent and invention we can not go ahead.So, as an exceptional worker without discipline means he is not punctual, now you ask him why he is not punctual then try to solve his problem and surely he will also be disciplined and exceptional, accordingly he will be the real person to get increament first as he has the exceptional quality to bring forward your compny ahead by his exceptional doings.

    Thank you,

    Hello Sir,
    As a manager you must have observed each candidate so dont hesitate to give appraisal what you think.
    in corporate discipline is necessary but if he is a exceptional worker and contribute extraordinarily in situations where other fails then you need to give him the good appraisal forgetting his nondisciplinary acts..because he is your key resource and if he leaves then that will impact more.now coming to the candidates who are good in both deserve the good appraisal and you can give them good rating and it does not mean that only performance and discipline are the only two parameter to calculate appraisal.there are other attributes like
    team involvement.
    contribution towards process improvement
    contribution towards compny
    attending all meetings and contributing effectively
    participating in company events...etc
    so on these basis the one you think more competent should be awarded with good appraisal.
    thank You

    Hi friend,

    To be frank both need to be their.

    with out Discipline you cannot perform.

    And without Performance you cannot survive.

    So Discipline is the first and the foremost thing that you need to have in order to get appreciation.

    But without performance nothing can be achieved.

    So you cannot give certain preference to any one thing leaving the other thing behind.

    HOpe i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thankning you...

    HellO
    This is a very difficult situation.
    But you should be practical and take a fair decision.
    you should give the increment to the employee who is performing well and is discipline.
    He is good in both the aspects so that should be considered.
    If a person is performing well and is not discipline then it will affect the image of your company which is not good.
    So take a fair and practical decision.


    Thank you

    performance and discipline both should have importance in your career and at work.. discipline is very important in your life as because discipline is valuable thing in life because performance is linked with discipline as because time is well maintained by the proper functioning person and punctuality is must for an employee which is inculcated by discipline only..
    sir, its increment time when you have individuals who are good at performance and one worker is lacking in discipline then you should definitely choose a person who is good at both aspects for appraisal...

    Dear Aspirant,

    In fact both of them should be given the increment of salary because both of them are working there & performing well.Discipline is concerned with behaviour & obedience,If one is very obedient & little poor in behaviour then it is not so negative,because on the basis of obedience,he/she performs well in duty & that is lastly needed for an employer.

    Of course if an employee is well in discipline & performance,he is eligible to get more points & preferable compare to others.perfomance is greatly affected by discipline in some caes.
    So both of them are eligible to get salary increment & the employee who is good in discipline & performance may be prefered to be selected foe client dealing etc.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello,

    Both are important. If you have no discipline then there is no question of performance.
    Discipline plays a vital role in our life. On the other hand if you don't perform then how
    can you expect reward or recognition. Discipline and performance both compliment each
    other so you should give emphasis to both of them.

    Bye,

    You must opt for the second one as both the things are equally important as an employee of the company.

    If you give the preference to the employee that is good at work and lacks discipline than you will send a wrong message to all the other employees of the company.

    As all the employees will thing that discipline is not necessary to get appraisal, which will have a bad effect on the company.

    So if you give the appraisal to employee which is good in both than the other employee who is not disciplined will automatically understand that only his work is not seen, and he had to

    be disciplined as well to get reward for his work.

    Make an attempt and offer increment to help each of them seeing that they are both very good within their perform and for that reason are usually good belongings to your company. When you're really obligated to make a choice and then you should definitely offer the increment to help the employee that is both equally very good in the perform especially regimented.Currently being disciplined will be as essential as staying a great the performer and you would like both these features with the correct amount to help achieved success in your career.

    Currently being disciplined indicates your upbringing understanding that how responsible you enter your work. And yes it indicates your ethics and good manners.This is certainly a good on the very good employee and for that reason the employee with your features ought to get this increment. But of course you must not allow additional employee really feel dejected. Call him up to help work and tell him it was obviously a extremely hard competitiveness between the two of them yet he or she shed as a result of deficiency of discipline. Inform him to help strengthen his some weakness and the next time period he or she is certain to have the increment. Lets hope he or she receives empowered and gets into the proper direction.
    both equally items work most effectively and the majority necessary to be followed in the workplace premises due to the fact should you become underneath the willpower then you would become called as a certified individual in the workplace premises and should you admire other individuals and then they can also present you with plenty of admire which is of importance to you and as soon as you can buy this admire then you would feel good between the many staff members and it will be a terrific consequence for your doing the job overall performance due to the fact whenever a employee perform inside a rate and joyful mood and then he/she supplies wise to the corporation and make contributions a growing number of simply because they thinks which if your business offers plenty of reaction for the kids and furnishing each center with a no cost oriented and favorable doing the job environment and then why would not most people make contributions this wise to the corporation that's the reason but nevertheless in the event you manager will be wondering for both items then you should not fear due to the fact you happen to be encountered employee in the workplace premises therefore you learn almost everything very well whilst still being in case you are making an effort for your business and providing plenty of then you certainly will not need to attention with regards to the overall performance and be simple, truthful, small and regimented making sure that you could get this reaction through the manager also and hubby may reward that you this CEO of the business and you ought to prevent a few few items inside willpower that happen to be seeing that - Utilizing Mobile phone Devices with through doing the job working hours, talking each other staff members hopelessly through doing the job working hours for some time, yawning on the pc, not following your guidance of the business plus the administrator, not furnishing plenty of admire to one another with to worry with regards to these kind of modest items and these modest items would make a person excessive inside company.
    In fact each of them need to be provided this increment connected with paycheck due to the fact they are both doing the job right now there & carrying out well.Discipline is concerned with behavior & follow,If you are extremely obedient & small very poor with behavior then its not so negative,due to the fact by follow,he/she functions very well with work & that may be as a final point required with an employer.

    Naturally if staff will be very well with willpower & overall performance,they're a candidate to obtain additional issues & more effective can rival others.perfomance will be greatly afflicted with willpower in some caes.
    And so they are both allowed receive paycheck increment & the employee that is very good with willpower & overall performance might be prefered for being picked foe purchaser engaging etc.

    Re: Performance or discipline, which takes a preference?

    Hi,

    Your question is a very relevant one as in professional life discipline and performance are the two key aspects which help an employee or a professional to climb up the ladder of success and neither of these two virtues can be overlooked.

    In fact, it has been observed that an individual who has been an extraordinary performer does rise up the ladder of success with great speed but once success gets into his head and he finds difficult to handle success, he starts deteriorating and his performance goes for a toss.

    On the other hand, a cool, calm, composed and well poised professional who might be just a good and consistent performer does know really well how to tackle success and pressure which arise due to success very adeptly, shows good signs in the long run and is not only able to maintain his position even in difficult times but also keeps rising up with the passage of time.

    So, In my opinion. increment should be given to both the professionals - the extraordinary performer and the disciplined consistent performer but the disciplined and consistent performer must be given an edge over the extraordinary performer.

    However, the decision is entirely yours.

    Thanks.
