Bad Business Practice # 3:

Roberto Henry Ebelt


Bad Business Practice # 3:

Antes de apresentar a BAD BUSSINESS PRACTICE # 3, lembremos os assuntos das primeiras duas:


Surprising your client by adding unexpected expenses or fees to his bill.

BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE #2: to be a slow payer.

Don't pay bills until they are at least 90 days old.

A terceira prática negativa é a seguinte:

BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE #3:  Keep employees in fear of losing their jobs. 

Do you like to crack (= estalar) the whip (= chicote) to "keep them in line"? 

Do you tell employees that their year-end holiday bonus is that you won't fire (= dismiss from a job) them, at least for now?


Keep employees happy and treat them with respect. 

Good employees are wonderful goodwill ambassadors. 

Plus, they stay at their jobs so you avoid recurring (= repetidos, recorrentes) training costs. 

On the other hand, disgruntled (= bitter, disappointed, displeased) employees undermine (=sabotage, subvert) your marketing program and complain to everyone they see, spreading their poison all over town. 

If you cannot correct the underlying (= fundamental) problem and turn grumbling employees into positive, enthusiastic employees, then replace them.

Have an excellent week.
