DEALING WITH DISCIPLINE
Dealing with Discipline in the Workplace
Misconduct in the workplace is not something any employer wants to have to deal with. Such activity results in animosity and hostility amongst employers and employees throughout and entire organisation if not properly managed.
Where allegations of possible misconduct in the workplace surface, such occurrences require strict and consistent attention, so as to ensure the right precedent is set.
Performance management makes up a significant part of every manager's job, and this means managers must deal with poor performance. Managers often view this as one of the less desirable responsibilities that come with the job because too often our perception of managing poor performance is clouded by thoughts of tense, uncomfortable situations that may result in finger pointing, anger and denial.
Identify what behaviour is causing the employee to underperform
Confront their poor performance
Following the right process
Providing the right ongoing feedback
