Performance Management

Performance Management

A key responsibility of line managers is to continuously manage employee performance. Failure to address issues of unsatisfactory performance can lead to negative outcomes.

This half-day course is aimed at assisting those with responsibility for managing performance to do so effectively in order to minimise underperformance issues.

Managers will be trained on how to recognise underperformance (conduct or capability) and respond with early interventions. The training will give guidance on how to manage serious and on-going performance issues requiring formal corrective action, up to and including dismissal. The training will cover the legal and best practice aspects of managing underperformance.
