The types of waste (8): Misuse of employees

Small office

Originally, there are seven types of waste in Lean Thinking. Declaring the wrong use of employees as an additional type of waste definitely makes sense, because valuable resources are also lost here. This type of waste occurs when highly qualified employees, specialists or managers spend part of their working time on simple administrative tasks, travel expense accounting or similar. This can often be observed in the course of the cancellation of team assistant positions. Waste occurs here because the company pays too high a salary for simple tasks, but also because this situation usually leads to demotivation of qualified employees. The consequences are foreseeable, especially in the course of the shortage of skilled workers: in the long term, the migration of qualified employees must be expected.
