Let him be there !

This is something which happened twenty-five years back.

I was handling an air-conditioners dealership for my friend.  There was an ace salesman known to
us who would at times give some leads to us.

One day I told him that we should ask the salesman to join our sales team.

My friend immediately (part jokingly)  told me, "No, never do that. He will work for you only when he is there.
If you take him and pay salary, etc. he will start working for someone else".

This is a very bad thing and was a rarity.

Unfortunately today I find that more than 90% of the staff are like this. They work for our company,
but they give better service and put in lot of efforts to the customers, suppliers and more particularly
the other dealers.

Alas, duty and dedication to the employer is totally absent!
