Addressing Poor Performance in the Federal Workplace: A Guide for Managers

Price: $26.75


This 47-page pamphlet gives HR personnel and supervisors practical advice to manage poor performers and details how to use training, counseling and mentoring to help the employee improve.

You'll gain the confidence to effectively handle poor performance -- and secure the support of top management -- by learning specific strategies to:

  • Clearly communicate employees' performance goals and objectives
  • Use the probationary period to ensure employees are suited to the position
  • Master the qualities of a skilled mentor and conduct counseling sessions
  • Prevent poor performance using constructive feedback and rewards
  • And much more

Plus, you find out the core elements of a performance improvement plan and how supervisors should assist employees on PIPs. And, an overview of current case law helps you understand how actions will be viewed by courts and administrative bodies and provides guidance on which steps to take to avoid losing a case before the MSPB or the courts.
