Low Performance Management at IMS Gear SE & Co. KGaA - Development of a process and supporting tools to improve employee performance

  • Underperforming employees are quickly put into the low performer category and rash decisions and actions need to be taken. Managers “just want the problem to go away” and human resources must find a solution – transfer, change of contract, disciplinary actions are often the only choices. But it doesn’t need to always end in escalation. Early identification and communication is the first step towards a solution and a win-win situation for all parties involved. Followed by a thorough cause analysis and a matched action plan the foundation for improvement is laid. Raising awareness of plausible causes, the right actions to be taken and empowerment of the management level are the next steps towards a performance improvement oriented culture. Focusing on how to improve low performance is a corrective measure, taking actions and measures to prevent low performance to arise, like implementing a holistic performance management system, is the more effective and easier way.
