Managing underperformance in the workplace

Underperformance is a term used when an employee isn’t meeting performance targets, or is behaving in an unacceptable way at work. Underperforming staff members negatively impact productivity and workplace morale problems can escalate if the matter is not dealt with promptly.

Managing Poor Performance

What can you do when an employee is consistently underperforming?

We help employers with performance management concerns in their team to identify the key issues linked to poor performance and to then put in place a strategy to improve work performance. We work with both individual performance concerns and broader performance issues that may be apparent across the workplace or specific teams.

We consider the unique factors contributing to each situation, and advise on the best approach considering the specifics of your business.

Our HR specialists work with you or your management team, to provide support and structure around this performance management process to achieve the best outcome, while minimising any potential risks to the business.
