Do you have a problem with an employee who just can't do their job properly or whose behaviour or attitude is poor?

This ebook will show you how you can fix this
problem in an effective and systematic way

The Problem...

Every organisation at some point suffers from having an employee who doesn't do their job to the standard required, or from an employee who has an attitude problem, or one whose behaviour is not acceptable. Unfortunately if this situation is not addressed by the managers of that business, then experience shows that it can have a seriously detrimental effect on other employees and clients or customers interacting with the company. This can result in serious damage and even business failure, especially in smaller organisations.

How this ebook can help

First it is essential to identify what is causing the problem. Is it because the employee just can't do the job even though they are trying their best? Is their attitude or the way they behave deliberately not appropriate for their job role? Or is it a bit of a grey area and not clear what the issue is? The book takes you systematically through how to identify the problem as the first stage in how to sort it out.

Taking action in relation to job competence, long-term sickness, persistent short-term absences and misconduct are all dealt with in detail.

The book takes you through how to tackle the problem issue informally including how to set up and run an informal meeting, and how to develop and monitor action plans to ensure improvements are made by the employee.

When informal actions fail, the book explains in comprehensive detail how to move to a formal approach which could ultimately lead to the employee's dismissal.

Each key point is illustrated with case studies and examples, which explain how real-life problem situations were successfully dealt with, using the guidelines outlined in the book.
