Typical vs Maximal Performance

If I was a business owner in this situation looking between a typical or maximal performance worker to hire it would be a tough decision to make for sure. In my decision I would need to look over my entire company and think about the work that I am doing now and potentially in the future. As well as knowing the people I have working for me already. For example knowing if I have a couple employees that I can count on whenever and will get things accomplished than I will be in good shape to have a consistent worker. Although at the end of the time I am probably going to hire Jaime in this situation because of her consistency. If I know the output she can bring and stick to that than make sure everything else is covered. I am all about consistency and Avery might be really good at times and in the clutch but I need someone that I can count on all the time it will be much better in the long run. Especially for my business.

An example of a job where hiring someone like Avery would be better than Jaime is in high stress situations or when an order is at its deadline. Lets say for example I run a t-shirt printing shop. I need to print over 500 t-shirts by the end of the night. If I hire Avery he would be able to produce the shirts in time and complete the order. But a draw back would be he would get behind on many other orders or the quality of the work for those smaller orders would not be good. Though the smaller orders are not going to make as much money they are still important. Avery would be the only one to deliver and get the large job done that would be making us all of the money. Jaime would not be the right hire because we know she could only get half that order done in time. The amount she gets done would be high quality but have our largest customer unhappy. There is certainly times where each applicant would be a better fit. In the end you just have to decide on what would be the best decision moving forward.

In the same type of job it would be better to have someone like Jaime because you know the output you will get and the work will always be consistent. Knowing Jaime can produce lets say about 300 shirts a day you know how much she will need to work to get the job done. Also with that how consistent there quality would be and she would be on top of other small orders to have all customer happy at the end it. Providing a positive experience so customers come back again. Avery would not be the best option in my opinion for long term success in a company. Unless my company is in a situation where we could afford to have someone like Avery then maybe but that is most likely not the case. The only real value I see is Avery can get you out of a Jam but that is about it. I would take Jaime almost all of the time because it is better for business and by having someone like Jaime would help for steady growth and a consistent product. Should be able to avoid getting in a jam or anything like that.
