Managing employees’ poor performance can often be a daunting task. However, allowing performance issues to slide can cause serious issues in the long term, not just in terms of cost to your business, but also the detrimental effect on staff morale when an employee is underperforming.
If you suspect that an employee is under performing or lacks the required level of capability to conduct their role, you can take action to either improve their performance to a satisfactory level, or ultimately terminate their employment if they continually fail to meet the required standard.
As performance issues can sometimes be subjective, it’s crucial to follow a fair procedure. This will usually include a thorough investigation, consultation with the employee over the issue and giving them the opportunity to improve their performance over a realistic timescale, by offering training and guidance to meet objective targets.
