Many businesses I work with have a hit and miss performance management strategy and it goes something like this:
- I’m not sure my team member is performing well
- I seem to be getting lots of complaints, I’m pretty sure they aren’t doing their job properly
- I’m getting landlord terminations now, I’m confident that team member has to go
Does the above sound like you? Does this unfold over 2 or 3 months?
We need to have a mechanism to quickly identify which team members are underperforming so we can either upskill them back into their role or exit them quickly from the business.
What mechanisms do you use to quickly identify these underperforming team members?
