Sick Business Syndrome: Definition Source: Sales Synthesis 3 Sick business syndrome (SBS) is used to describe situations in which employees experience negative health and comfort effects that appear to correlate (and be linked) to time spent in a specific company/business. The outcome is a business entity that is not healthy enough to be viable in the marketplace.

Resourcing is a major factor with SBS Source: Sales Synthesis Ratio of Unskilled to Skilled Resources Productivity The Peak of Positive Positioning The more prevalent the incorrect resource selection criteria, the lower the resultant productivity The Trajectory of Hopelessness 5 Correct selection criteria Increased nepotism/cronyism Incorrect resources outnumber correct resources X
A Selection of ‘Other’ factors Impacting SBS To a ‘lesser extent’ other factors need to be considered 6 • Unclear business strategy • Business Ethics • Cultural Diversity • Role and responsibility confusion • Commuting Problems • Remuneration Parity • Buy-in to the Business Strategy • Company Politics • Respect for Executive Management • Weak Leadership • Poor – or missing - Support Systems & Tools • Unfocused Strategic Market Development • Lack of support for wellness initiatives • Restructuring Periodicity • Brand Acceptance • Litigation • Relevant Offerings Portfolio • Etc…
Self-Assessment of SBS: Example 7 Factor Impact as a Percentage Commentary Business Ethics 55% Averaged but known it’s a problem in the Procurement Unit Cultural Diversity 40% Aligned to all legislative requirements & demographics Brand Acceptance 35% Positive acceptance in the marketplace ABCXYZ NN% …. Etc. Notes: 1. The above table should be completed as comprehensively as possible 2. Once completed, the table should be validated with colleagues and then the factors prioritised 3. Each factor - in priority order - should be addressed with its own project owner/initiative 4. After an agreed period (say, 3 months) the process should be repeated as part of continuous improvement
Is Sick Business Syndrome inevitable? 8 Productivity The Peak of Positive Positioning Without a ‘review intervention’ at this point, there is a possibility that negative factors will become a major influence X The Trajectory of Hopelessness Ratio of Unskilled to Skilled Resources Honesty is required in any organisational reviews – else the results are worthless
Is Sick Business Syndrome inevitable? 9 Productivity The Trajectory of Hopelessness Actions from self-assessment, or an opportunistic intervention, will inhibit negative impact and allow status-quo to be maintained/ retained – Inertia to SBS Ratio of Unskilled to Skilled Resources The Peak of Positive Positioning X Inertia to SBS is a safe and easy mechanism to use
