The piece by explores the concept of employers opting for 'average performers' instead of the star performers, stating that average employees may offer more stability to the company. The author notes that although top performers can bring significant value to a company, their demands frequently exceed their contributions, leading to discontent and disunity in the team and possible adversity. On the other hand, average performers, who are quieter about their contributions and are less demanding, often stay with a company longer. The author argues that a balance is required between star performers, average performers and under-performers for a successful organisation.
