Nearly every employer I have ever consulted with has told me about at least one employee who is not so great. There is always that one employee who doesn’t perform well, is difficult to deal with, does not work well with others or who means well but just never quite meets expectations. This webinar will take you through ways to effectively discipline and discharge difficult employees.

 Employee Discipline

Thursday, November 21, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT

Brian White, Executive Director of Human Resources and Operations at Auburn-Washburn USD 437, will present.

The goal of employee discipline is to address and correct performance concerns. You don’t need ESP to be effective, but you will learn about “E.S.P.” and its importance to changing behaviors and performance. Participants will learn how to provide feedback in a way to best communicate with an employee to improve performance concerns before they become a disciplinary issue. Unfortunately, there will be times where discipline becomes necessary. Best practices for documentation and writing effective discipline will also be discussed.
