    Low performers are those who don't suck up and play the game. Low performers are those that complain about poor and unsafe working conditions and that speak up and fight for fair working conditions. If your being a patient advocate costs the employer money you will be marked as a low performer. It's all about do more with less, its not in the budget, safe lifting equipment, working equipment. Your simply asking too much to have adequate staff and resources and working equipment to care for your patients!

    The high performers by contrast are the overachievers, martyrs who sacrifice and jump for the company and work lots of overtime at the drop of the hat. Those who don't get upset about broken equipment and being mandated because you are a nurse; therefore you are too important to go home, you must be available and willing to sacrifice for the hospital. High performers are those that want to jump thru all the hoops to climb the clinical ladder and want to spend all their free time on hospital comittees. High performers are the cheerleaders of the hospital, Rah, rah, work more for less, lets get patrioitic ie go hospital!

    That is 100% correct, brandy. The lable that is pinned on the"low Performer" is troublemaker. Performance is in the 'eye of the beholder' which= management.
