Employee performance can be improved and optimised when they have clearly outlined basic standards, expectations and targets. When these factors are clear, employees will be more productive.

Taking a disciplinary action or a capability action depends on the nature of the poor performance by the individual employee. For example, should an employee be failing to meet production targets despite best efforts, initiating a capability procedure will be necessary. Should an employee have the ability to do better but does not, then a disciplinary procedure will be more appropriate. To roll out either of these procedures requires very specific steps which must carefully observe the relevant codes of practice and legislation. When deciding to initiate either procedure it is strongly advised that employers seek expert advice.

To maintain a good working relationship with employees it is best to be encouraging and supportive rather than to be critical or authoritarian. An authoritarian approach with employees has proven to cultivate a disillusioned and disgruntled workforce which inevitably leads to an employee resigning or taking a grievance procedure.

All warnings should be “live” for a set period.  For example, a ‘live’ period of six months is appropriate for a first written warning while 12 months is more suitable for a final written warning.
