A post from our friends at The Admin Pro Forum and Business Management Daily has generated a lively discussion with mixed views on whether an employee put on a performance improvement plan is on a slow road to nowhere or if it means opportunity lies ahead with a little effort and a bright outlook.What are your thoughts?
Is a performance improvement plan the end of opportunity?
Question: “I was placed on a performance improvement plan at work. I really think it’s a way to slowly fire me, and it’s such a morale killer to be under this kind of watch that I don’t have much enthusiasm left for the job. Does anyone ever come back from being on probation like this to do really well with their company and leave the black mark totally behind? I sure can’t think of an example.” – Violet, Insurance ResearcherSee comments below, and send your own question to Admin-Pro@nibm.net.
