Creating Performance Improvement Plan (PIPs) that really works……..
Document, document, document. It would be great if that is all it takes to manage the performance of an employee who continues to walk a slippery path to meeting company expectations. I’m not suggesting you stop documenting; by no means should you do that. Documentation is the way we capture occurrences in the moment, action details that we may not be able to recall a month later. What I am suggesting is that you document the details necessary to have a meaningful conversation that allows you to help coach the employee to a position of success through an effective performance improvement plan.
