Summary

In times of a shortage of skilled workers, skilled workers that have become scarce are often lured, pampered and pampered with attractive offers, privileges and special services. Out of the need of the shortage, certain employees, on whom one feels dependent, are placed on the pedestal and glorified. This is a short-term solution with serious long-term problems: Blundered employees are not the same as high-performing, committed and loyal employees. There are smarter options for dealing with the shortage of skilled workers: no warm bodies, misfit recruiting, an integrative climate, training on the job, career changer qualifications. It is not enough to simply hire applicants. You have to do a little personal development for that. As the saying goes: every boss has the employees he deserves.
