Each year your organization has a lot it needs to get done, but it’s hard to reach your goals when your employees aren’t meeting their performance expectations. What should you do if you notice this? Maybe you think immediate disciplinary action is not necessary in this situation, but you certainly don’t want to ignore the problem. When you are in this position, it might be a good time to create a performance improvement plan (PIP).
A PIP plan is much more individualized and detailed than the annual performance appraisal you give to all of your employees, and how you create one should reflect this. A good PIP will talk about specific concerns in that particular employee’s performance and it should address examples of the level of performance desired from that particular employee.
