A brief discussion about what anthropologists note about U.S. culture, that males are not as likely to take responsibility for children they biologically father and tend to be reluctant to take on an equal role responsibility for household chores.

The advice I would give employees is to increase their level of value. Efficiency is achieved by individuals who are willing to make a difference within the organization. An employee should make constant strides to go above and beyond the call of duty or of what is expected of them, this is what gives an exceptional employee an advantage over other employees. Each employee has the potential for leadership in which case managers, supervisors, and/or leaders take notice and seek out individuals who may possess potential leadership quality. Therefore, an ideal employee is one who does not count down the minutes till their shift is over, rather an ideal employee is the opposite, he/she is the one who comes to work early and stays late or until the job is completed with no carryover into the next business day. An ideal employee is also the one who hungers for additional work related tasks and is appreciative for the challenge associated with each new responsibility. An employee must acquire the ability to stand out in an effort to make a lasting impression on consumers, peers and colleagues.
