People leave companies two ways: forever and for a little while.

In both cases, the workers who are left behind get a true picture of what their departed colleagues were really doing – or not doing.

As August vacations reach their peak, organizations all over the world are working to keep things moving for customers while discovering and dealing with unintended surprises left behind by co-workers who are away on their annual leave.

It’s like lifting up a rock and watching bugs crawl out.

In high-performance cultures, accountability is based on a foundation of trust, clear expectations and consistent evaluation. Accountability is not a top-down mandate but rather a commitment among colleagues to support each other. Everyone does their part. Unpleasant surprises are few and far between.
