Managing employee performance is never an easy process, particularly when it includes underperformance. You spend time implementing policies and expectations, developing position descriptions for individual roles and putting in place compliant employment contracts.
With these documents in place, as a business owner you have hope that your employees are performing their best and in line or exceeding those expectations. When there is a gap between your employee’s performance and your expectations, this should be addressed as soon as possible, before it causes noticeable impact to productivity and the broader workplace environment.
For most, it is a difficult conversation to have. However, the risk of not having the conversation could be detrimental to your business. The consequences could mean poor process and practice leading to unfair dismissal or unlawful termination claims in the FWC.
