As events to celebrate Labor Day continue at various workplaces, employees should take time to reflect on their attitude towards work.
An employee may approach their job in a negative manner, coming late to work, doing your task with spite because you think conditions are better elsewhere, and treating colleagues or clients like they’re the last person you want to see. Such kind of attitude should not be entertained, because, you not only put your job at risk, but you also diminish the progress of the company.
Such attitude deters the developmental progress of the country and has an impact on the well being of the citizens. Rwanda’s goals are clearly defined in the 2020 Vision, and to achieve this, the human capital needs to be used to its full potential.
Be it the public or private sector, attitude towards work needs to be results oriented. The lack of enthusiasm for work, that, in some cases, has characterized public institutions has only proved to be a waste of tax payer’s money.
Therefore, as we celebrate Labor Day, the focus should go beyond the traditional speeches for workers rights.
The workers too, should keep in mind that their attitudes are vital in determining how much success the business, company or institution will have now and in the future.
