What do you do with an employee who is highly self-motivated to be productive and helpful? Can they be a higher risk than the run-of-the-mill slug who is just working for a paycheck?
Might it be that the slug is more motivated to obey the rules (and keep his/her job) than the overly motivated employee?
“Crime Lab’s Ex-Chemist Is Sentenced,” Wall Street Journal, November 23-24, 2013 A2 http://on.wsj.com/1aP0zSv
A former crime lab chemist in Massachusetts responsible for checking drugs seized at the scene pled guilty to tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice, and fudging her resume. Was she bribed? Was she bent? No, she just wanted to be more productive. Apparently, insufficient controls in place until responsibility for the lab was shifted from the health department to the public safety agency.
