I dont think there are bad or good employees. In think there are motivated and non motivated employees. I pay my workers a flat fee per week. Regardless of the amount of time spent daily. If we are bussy, we work 15 hours per day & if we are not busy, we are spending times with our families. I know people that are paying an hourly rate. But there are times when there is little work due to snow, floods, etc. In this times the employees can have serious financial problems especially if they have a big mortgage.
I know other companies that are paying people a flat fee (salary) but if there is not work in 1 days, they bring the cleaners to their homes to clean their own home. They are always short of staff.
I think my system is the best and it makes workers feel obliged to work longer when the work is there. If we get 2 days with a lot of sun (not that often in Ireland), i try to let them ho home early. The energy they have the next day is amazing.
