The dilemma of inadequate performance


 

 

Act on time

 

Mprove.work benefits employee and manager

 

Excellent results

What to do if an employee performs inadequately? It is not enough to just state the issues brought forward during an assessment. Structured conversations must be held in order to concretise issues and potential improvements in an improvement plan. All information for this is generally available and every HR department has the necessary experience. In short, everyone knows how to act in case of inadequate performance. Nevertheless, the situation is often handled incorrectly between the manager and the employee, resulting in a failure to achieve the goal of improvement. This leads to mutual frustrations, emotions and loss of productivity. This can create disruption to the working atmosphere, absenteeism due to psychological complaints, conflicts and high costs.

 

The longer a company waits to intervene, the more difficult it becomes to resolve the situation.

 

The manager can use Mprove.work to recover productivity of the employee and save on the costs associated with absenteeism, departure and recruitment.
The benefit for the employee is that Mprove.work is aimed towards optimising the employee's talents, and makes sure of an objective and fair chance to retain the employee's position with the help of a coach.

 

Because the process is meticulous and transparent, the results are excellent: in the vast majority of cases the employee can be retained.


 

Tech and Touch

On the basis of a digital step-by-step plan in the Mprove.work tool, the manager implements an improvement plan together with the employee. Each step describes in simple language what is expected of the manager. Complex questions are linked with explanations. It is important that the relationship between the manager and the employee is not damaged during the process. This is why Mprove.work requires the manager and employee to engage in a dialogue not only digitally. Each step is discussed in a physical meeting between the manager and employee. Mprove.work therefore ensures that the human touch remains present.

Hybrid coaching

Both the manager and the employee are coached externally by Mprove.work. Starting with an intake session, where the Mprove.work method will be explained. Also, they will be prepared on how to have the necessary discussions. The coaching will be tailored to the needs of the particular situation and will be done by video, phone, email or during a physical meeting.

Does the Mprove.work improvement plan look the same for every employee?

No. During the Mprove.work step-by-step plan, the improvement goals and the way in which they are achieved are always determined on the basis of the answers given in the step-by-step plan. This can be different in all cases.

How long does the improvement process take?

The duration of an improvement trajectory depends on the nature and amount of the improvement goals and the route chosen to reach the goals. This is usually 6 to 7 months. It may also be necessary to extend the improvement plan if the process is interrupted by illness, long vacation or other leave.

Can the improvement process also take less than 6 months?

Yes. Sometimes the nature of the improvement goal means that the goal must be achieved in (much) shorter time. It is also possible that the improvement plan must be canceled because the manager and the employee cannot agree, even after engaging or consulting third parties, and not even after a reflection period. Mprove.work naturally does everything it can to prevent this. Another possibility is that an employee opts for another position within the company at the beginning of the process, or leaves the company either in consultation or not.

How transparent is Mprove.work for the employee?

The employee has his own login option, which means that he always has full access to the step-by-step plan. Just like the manager, he/she can see all the interview reports at any time, what the agreements are and what the status of their implementation is.

What is the role of HR in the use of Mprove.work?

Because Mprove.work takes care of the entire supervision of the step-by-step plan, HR has no role to play in that regard. However, questions may arise in the step-by-step plan for which HR can be consulted, such as about the job description, about the possibilities of following education and training and about other positions available. In addition, both the manager and the employee can stay in contact with HR on all sorts of issues, including the improvement plan. HR and the management are periodically kept informed of the progress of the step-by-step plan.

Is my data secure?

All data entered is encrypted and sent to a secure server. The hosting is provided by a specialized Dutch company, making sure that personal data is fully protected in accordance with European privacy rules. To prevent data loss, no information is stored on the computer, tablet or smartphone of the employee or manager.
