Employee performance is a major contributor to an organization's
success or failure. Because of this, it is important for employers
to manage employee performance and to promptly address poor performance
and unacceptable employee conduct. Employers have many tools available
to accomplish this, including employee handbooks, job descriptions,
and individual goals and objectives that can help communicate expectations
to employees. In addition, progressive discipline policies provide
a tool for dealing with poor performance when discipline is required.
In many cases, clear communication about expectations and prompt,
appropriate discipline when needed can turn employee performance around.
