Join Todd Dewett for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing the termination process, part of Letting an Employee Go.
To begin, let's start by clearly focusing…on one very important fact.…Employee termination should be viewed as a process,…not a simple event.…The actual act of firing someone…is only one of several steps you'll want to consider…in order to make the separation as effective as possible.…There's a lot to consider,…and most of it begins long before the actual meeting…where the employee is given the news.…It all starts with clear work rules and policies.…I don't wish to encourage excessive bureaucracy,…but basic work rules and regulations…should be clear, formal, made accessible to employees,…and consistently applied across employees.…
Non-existent or sloppy policies are often a problem later…when you wish to terminate an employee.…Next is the ongoing process…of observing and documenting performance.…As a leader, you're always collecting data,…because data is the backbone of your future decisions,…including terminations.…If you'd like a more lengthy discussion of how this is done,…you might want to check out another one of my courses…
