Managing Performance Issues with Employees

Step by step guide on how to manage performance issues with employees

In this episode 203 of the podcast I bring you a run down on the steps you need to take to effectively manage an employee who is not performing to the level you require. I also touch upon how to address those niggly attitude or behaviour issues that seem to be coming up more and more frequently.

In this episode of the podcast I cover:

  • The starting point and self-reflection as a manager.
  • Why it is important to go through an informal process first.
  • What the informal performance management process looks like.
  • Why a Performance Improvement Plan (known as a PIP) should be the last possible option with poor performance.
  • How to go through a formal process.
  • When you can issue warnings.
  • How long a process should take.
  • Answers to frequently asked questions about performance management.
  • How to deal with poor attitude.
  • How to address general small scale poor behaviours.

Of course at the heart of good performance management is COMMUNICATION!
