Employee performance improvement needed

One thing that Chief needs to do, Floyd and those that come next after him, is look at each employee for what they offer and the work they do. Many of us work for the tribe, not as part of the Floyd administration or the Tiger administration or the Ellis administration. We are there to work for the tribe whoever the Chief is. But when a new administration comes in we’re all seen as being part of the other’s group. Some of us aren’t part of a group. Some of us just want to do the right thing, work hard, have good service for tribal members, do our part to make things better. But that is not being considered when deciding on employees at creek nation. This seems to happen with each election. There are some people that work for the tribe that are really good workers and mean well. There are others that are there just to get a check and do as little work as possible. We all know someone like that. They make excuses why work is not done, they blame others, they think they shouldn’t have so much to do, they think the work isn’t needed because it doesn’t matter or its not important, you see them talking with others or on their cell phones more than at their desk working, they just complain when they don’t get their way. Other employees are in the middle, do just enough to get by and then lay low to not get noticed. Chief, please set a new and higher standard for employees, even those that may be family or friends of the administration. Each department should have a way to have evaluations from the citizens, whether on paper or online. I don’t mind if someone reviews me. I know I work hard. If problems come up, talk with managers and get things going in a more positive direction. Maybe its a training issue, maybe its an expectation issue. We expect more as citizens and those that are hard working employees, and I think we deserve it.
