  • How to Manage Underperforming Employees
    in fewer A players being attracted to join the company It s a vicious cycle that won t stop until a change is made from either the employer or employee How do you avoid that cycle when it becomes apparent that there are underperformers in your organizations At Volaris we have come up with a proven multiple step action plan to work through these situations when they arise Step 1 Do we have a clear assessment of the employee s results and skills If not then reassess in 3 months Without a clear assessment a manager cannot make a fair rational decision If you do have an assessment then move onto step two Step 2 Employee could improve enough and hasn t been given a strong message Sometimes employees don t realize that they are not meeting expectations Miscommunications do happen from time to time By making the employee aware of their performance putting them on formal notice and providing feedback and coaching the employee will either rise to the occasion or not Step 3 Is the employee a square peg in a round hole with some valuable skills At this step an employee with skills that is still not performing should voice if they feel that they are in the right role If they haven t said anything ask them point blank if they feel they should switch roles and if yes then move the employee to a role that they would be better suited for If the employee doesn t feel that staying with company is the right thing for them and their career then it s time to discuss parting ways This method works for a variety of reasons First we don t give up on the employee We give ample opportunity for the employee to correct their behaviour or find another area of the company where they may excel at Also it s a logical process that can be applied to any employee which reduces the probability of making irrational decisions based of emotion instead of what is best for the business Finally it clearly shows our due diligence so no rash decisions are made But keep in mind throughout this process the employee has as much vested interest as the employer in improving their performance It is up to them if they want to be a part of your organization or not If either party is not willing to put the time and effort into the other then it is time to move on Finally a key component to this whole process is to not procrastinate It s natural to avoid having to discipline an employee or give them bad news but the more you delay the process the more you allow the problem to fester and cripple the employee and business in the long run Your Turn What has your experience been with low performers How have you handled them Do you think it could have been handled better Let us know in the
