to me YES! because for me how smart,inteligence a person is,,! for me it is useless,there will come a point that he/she will make some errors due to not fallowing rules and regulation! it is better to remove such employee like that because it is almost the same that it is not part of the job,,

first i would warn them, so they could shange. if they doing that all over agein i would rather throw them out in the company. their are many people deserve to have their job. if they can not follow simple rules why they stay longer in the company. even they are giving alot of output they should follow the rules because they only feed back that is good to hear is their evaluation of performance is good

There are reasons for every actions. If I were the superior, I will ask the employee about the problems he/she encounters on the rules that he/she disobeyed. If I find the actions offensive to the company, I'll fire him, but if it may contribute to the growth, why do so? Besides, the skills are fantastic, so why waste such talent. Only few employees posses exemplary talents. BUT, always take into consideration the benefits that the company may gain, because the reason why the company hires an employee is for its own growth.

I better to send them for any workshop and other seminar for that employee to be properly oriented on his or her behavior inside the office but if this will not work for that employee it is better to fire him or her to the position and move out in the company to realize all the mistakes that had done when he or she was employed in your company but for such thing that the employee will change of course the better way to achieve is to remain that employee to the position given and do more such observation if the seminar works to help the employee.

if he or she is fantastic and still productive on his job though he keeps on disobeying rules..i will let him do his own way...maybe that employee has his own style to perform a task easier if he does'nt have to follow the rules so better yetlet him do what he wants to do as long as it won't ruin the company's name.

You shouldn't immediately throw them out, as they say finding a very competitive employee isn't that easy this days. Tell them what they're doing is very unfair to the other employees and should follow what is set by the company. If they're too hard-headed and still keep breaking the rules despite giving them a warning then that's the time that you will fired them up. We're not a little kids anymore to still be spoiling in our working environment. Other employess might do the same if they see that you're just tolerating the others mistakes.

no.. i will not throw them out because even if they are not following rules still they are doing their jobs fantastic with their production. maybe they have thier own strategy in doing thier job unless if this strategy is bad, then that's the time that i will throw them out.. maybe they are not also comfortable with the given rules in their job so they use their own creativity in doing it.. but there are also limitations in it.. they should also follow rules in a time..

It depends on how flexible your company is and what kind of company rules did he not follow. If it is something minor such as 5-10 minutes late for work, or something which other employees are breaking too, then there's no need to press the panic button just yet. After all, it's not easy to find a fantastic employee. However, if he is breaking some very critical and serious rules such as taking company information to competitors, or behaving rude to colleagues, or belittling the colleagues, etc. Then something has to be done in order to control his problematic attitude. You surely do not want to allow him too much freedom since he might launch a rebellion against your business. If he is planning to do so, then you have to control this guy no matter what. Don't let him think that he is bigger than the company and nobody dares to touch him. No one employee is bigger than the company itself. It'll be hard to find a fantastic performer, but it's not impossible.

We can't deny the fact that there are some people who tend to refuse to follow a certain rules of the company they are in. Maybe they have there own reasons why they have to this like they want the attention of the management to hear their concerns. But it is not proper for the management just to ignore it. In this case, they have to call the attention of the concern employees to correct them of their wrong deeds. And then practice the rules or punishments to these employees.

I would remind him that company rules are established to be followed regardless of how great his performance is. If he can't be responsible enough to comply with the basic rules then he doesn't deserve to be treated as fantastic in his jobs. Following the rules is the foundation of doing a great job so if he failed in that part then certain sequences must be done. Following rules is showing respect to those in authority who establish such rules. Keep in mind that a good employee is submisive. I would remind him that if he can't be obedient to the rules then might as well throw him out, he is not the only one who can perform a fantastic job.

Since the employee is productive, it is more beneficial for the company to retain him/her though he/she doesn't follow certain company rules. Anyway there's still solution with the problem with regards to the employee. The company can send him/her with some seminars, workshops, or trainings for his/her performance's development. With this, the employee will learn more and he/she will train to follow company rules which is a need inside the workplace. It is not only for his/her own improvement but also to the company where he/she is employed.

I wont throw them. I could talk to them about their attitude and ask them that they should and need to follow company rules. I would tell them that even if they are fantastic at their job, that doenst excuse them from following rules. If after the talk and they dont still follow the rules then i would throw them. They may be fantastic and productive but stubborn and disobedient workers are not needed in a company. If they cant discipline themselves then we better kick them off from the company because if we dont they will be a problem later.

hmm.. It depends on how usual he/she violates to follow company rules. Well, if he/she is a chronic violator, and even talking to him/her didn't do any good.. throw him/her out...

Hello? monishavakil, being different is indeed a good attitude. I mean,different, in a way that you are not violating rules. Rules are rules, but they say "in every rule there's an exception" so for me i'm not going to throw them out. As long as she is not going to hurt others why not retaion them and observe if what they are doing is fair. And if the employee is not making bad impressions to the costumers.

try to talk to him nicely and explain the rules of the company. dont throw them away because they are the one who can make the company profitable. if he still refuses to follow company rules then let it go. the important thing is that, he is doing good things not bad things that could make the company's image not good.

i will throw him/her away because the company hired him/her with the abilities and knowledge he/she have. For me i will let him stay in company and reminds him about he rules that he needs to follow. give him memo so that he will be alarmed with the rules to be followed. It will takes me time but at least he knows then and its up to him if he love his job. It is just a matter of discipline for him to obey.

If I were the supervisor or the manager of that employee, I will let him do what he want or do as he wished as long as he is productive and he is a big asset to the company. Maybe it is just he's style or passion on working so I will let him do whatever his style is as long as he will not do anything bad that will cause to the company.But if he is not that productive and became the worst employee, I will give him a warning that if he will not follow the rules I will decresed his salary and if he is still not following the rules, I will demote him or rather dismissed him. That is just my opinion, it depends on you on what is your perception is. Good Day!
