Managing Staff Issues

Proactive strategies to manage underperforming & challenging staff

Failure to effectively manage poor performance and behavioural issues in the workplace is one of the leading causes of workplace disputes and legal complaints. The effective management of staff issues must be handled in a compliant, efficient and appropriate way. And it’s always best to tackle the issue before it escalates!

Failure to effectively manage poor performance and behavioural issues can result in:

  • Lost sales and customers
  • Inefficient processes
  • Other staff(including your top performers) leaving your organisation
  • Unproductive time as you and other team members are forced to troubleshoot and deal with inefficiencies
  • Loss of reputation (from the viewpoint of customers and potential new employees)
  • Legal action, which can place a significant strain on your time and your health, not to mention the significant costs involved!
