Dealing With Poor Performance

According to a survey by Sirota Survey Intelligence, a company’s failure to deal effectively with its few workers who are consistently poor performers may decrease the extent to which other employees are engaged in their jobs and their companies.

Key findings:
  • Only two out of five employees (slightly more so for management) who feel their companies are doing much too little to correct poor employee performance are favorably engaged at work.
  • 33% of management and 43%of non-management employees think their companies are not doing enough to deal with poor performers.
  • A very small percentage of employees at a typical workplace – usually around only 5% – are ‘allergic to work,’ and do as little work as they possibly can.
