Employee Poor Performance refers to a situation when employees cannot perform their major duties in line with specific performance standards and expectations defined by their employer. Such a situation can be caused by employee overload, absence, time wasting, resource deficit, insufficient expertise and other factors that negatively affect observable employee behaviors and thereby reduce employee performance.
Poor performance of personnel is one of the key issues for most companies that have employed people. Policies and standards of performance management serve as guidelines for employees to keep their performance up, but these tools do not allow managers to ensure required levels of employee performance. The issue can be addressed by the following solutions:
- Motivation: a highly motivated worker will do more jobs.
- Goal setting: an employee assigned to a clear and unambiguous goal understands a better way for reaching this goal.
- Training: well-trained personnel are enabled to perform more tasks and jobs within the same period of time.
- Feedback: it’s always easier to solve the problem of poor performance through establishing two-way communications between managers and subordinates.
