The Cost of Inaction

We all know of supervisors who spent a significant amount of time each week, worrying about how to deal with a problem employee.

The cost of that worry can be rather surprising.

(A) Take the total number of supervisors in your office, team, division, or department: __________

(B) Estimate the average hourly pay for those supervisors: __________

(C) Assume those supervisors grapple with preventable problems for an hour each day, so the total daily cost is:

(A)__________ times (B)__________ = $__________

Take that amount and multiply it by 22 for 22 working days per month and you’ll get the total monthly cost: $___________________

Multiply that amount by 12 for the total annual cost: $_________________
