Performance Management Series 2021 – Part 2- Managing Poor Performers - 13 April 2021 (On Demand)


Improve poor performance and follow performance management process

Poorly performing employees consistently make mistakes, miss deadlines, and lack skills to properly perform their jobs.

Many Kiwi employers avoid formal performance management for fear of getting the process wrong.

Delays affect team performance and productivity. Managers fed up with poor performers may dismiss without proper process, leading to costly unfair dismissals.

Find out how to manage poor performers, improve performance, and follow proper procedure before giving staff warnings for poor performance in this webinar.

Our employment lawyer Julia Shallcrass will cover your legal obligations to reduce the risk of personal grievances. We will explain the law on performance management, including what is good faith and how to act fairly and reasonably.

In this practical webinar, we will answer your questions like:

  • How can you improve staff performance?
  • What formal performance management processes are required for you to meet your employment obligations?
  • What is a reasonable timeframe for improvement of performance?
  • How can you avoid common legal pitfalls?
  • How can you manage performance issues in difficult situations, such as stress and mental health?

We will explore case law and case studies to help you deal with performance issues.
