Employers often leave performance management until it is too late. Costly mistakes can be avoided by early management of performance issues. We will provide employers with a Poor Performers Strategy and Settlement Agreement advice explaining different ways of managing poor performance, with practical examples you can implement.

We will look at the law and good practice on capability, including dealing effectively with instances of poor performance and the necessary communication skills for an investigatory or standard-setting meeting. We will also advise on situations where a promoted employee fails to make the grade.

Strategy topics include:

Tackling causes of poor performance
Improving the performance culture
Managing individual performance
Capability or conduct?
What do tribunals expect of managers?
The Acas Code of Practice
Whether to have a formal capability procedure
Key ingredients of a fair procedure
Opportunity to improve
The importance of warnings
Dismissals and appeals
Risk management
Record keeping
Linking pay and performance
