Work Ethics and Vandalism!

Ethics | Vandalism | 26th August 2021 | Virtual Wire

When do you see a phrase like this 'Slack habits and sloppy work are as bad as vandalism', what comes to mind?

Here are a few questions it prompted for me:


1. Can a person who refuses to do his work as he or she is supposed to, be seen as vandalistic?


2. When I really don't care what the result of my work is, or who and what it affects, does that make my actions equivalent to vandalism?


You may be seeing both questions as taking appropriate work ethics too far, but I don't think so. According to the English Dictionary, vandalism means willful damage to or destruction of any property.

What's the connection right?

Well, anyone who doesn't offer the services he or she is being paid for as he has promised to (official agreement and all that), is indirectly destroying someone else's property{an organization(s) in this case}. Simple!


Whether this is too far or not, let's just say this is a call to not be sloppy with whatever we have found our hands to do.
