The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: Managing Employee Performance
The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: Managing Employee Performance
Product Code: 0214

In spite of good hiring and inspired leadership, all supervisors ultimately must deal with someone with Toxic Attitude Syndrome. Whether it’s crummy attitude, attendance, or just unable to do good work; employee performance issues often consume large amounts of time, energy, and emotion. In fact, 57% of employees have witnessed abusive or intimidating behavior and probably 100% work with someone who isn’t pulling their weight. This webinar is designed to give managers insight and tools for effectively dealing with performance issues. It is a challenging job but with the right preparation, we can hold employees accountable and improve our organizations. This is the third webinar in the Hiring To Discharging—The Performance Management Webinar Series.

Managers, supervisors, human resources professionals, and other personnel.
