Performance Improvement Programs are well accepted by courts, arbiters, civil review boards and employees as a non-punitive means for dealing with employee performance deficiencies. They reduce the burden on management by placing the responsibility squarely on the employee’s shoulders for improvement, reduces the basis for grievances because they are non-punitive methods for correcting deficient performance and they provide a valid offense against claims of illegal discrimination.

Attendees are taught:

  • The three causes for performance failure 

  • The standard for determining when performance needs improvement 

  • The advantages of performance improvement plans over punitive action 

  • How to develop a Performance Improvement Plan 

  • What it takes to enforce an improvement plan

Students receive class outline, model forms, rules, and certificate of attendance.
