troublesome employees


  1. Communicate regularly with staff
    Even if they don’t respond.
  2. Be consistent with all employees
    They need to know where they stand and what to expect.
  3. Tackle issues head-on
    Provide support, set targets, offer training where possible.
  4. Keep records
    We hope you won’t need them, but without them, your defence in a tribunal will be much weaker.
  5. Don’t let things fester
    Problem behaviour or poor performance won’t fix itself and you cannot bring up historic matters you never mentioned at the time.
