Managing the Poor Performer

Course Description

From talking to someone about coming in on-time to sacking them for stealing, managing people who don’t do their jobs properly is always a headache for managers and supervisors. However, it is worth the time to get it right. When performance management is not done well, everyone suffers and the organisation can end up dealing with the legal fall-out. This in-depth course is designed to give you or your managers the skills to improve your employee’s performance. Or if termination is needed, to have followed a process that will stand-up in the Fair Work Commission.

Learning outcomes

Our course will help you to understand the legislation, including unfair dismissal and general protections, and the risks when poor performance is not managed.

Topics include:

  • Why hoping it will get better doesn’t work.
  • Unfair dismissal and general protection laws.
  • What is HR’s job vs the manager’s job.
  • Why we must follow the organisation’s policy.
  • The role of paperwork and protecting the organisation.
  • Bringing up issues with an employee in a comfortable way.
  • How to have the tough conversations.
  • How to give a warning so it sticks.
  • Opening and closing the meeting.
  • Dealing with difficult situations.
  • Terminating an employee for serious misconduct.

We will spend time looking at recent case law about what to do when tricky situations occur, such as when one of the team:

  1. Openly criticises the business on Social Media.
  2. Doesn’t show up for work, or is using excessive personal/carer’s leave.

After learning the “why”, we will explore the “how” of managing performance. The group will put into practice the theory covered and will learn the steps to follow to help take the worry out of dealing with difficult employees.
