How many times have you heard a HR person tell you, “You can’t reward poor performance”?
You can’t reward poor performance. Of course……
But the thing is, it isn’t their poor performance. It’s yours.
Who recruited the person?
Who promoted the person?
Who trained the person?
Who rewarded the person?
As convenient as it is to say that individual poor performance just “happens”. It doesn’t. Organisations make poor performers. You make poor performers.
If HR is accountable for organisation performance, it is also accountable for individual performance.
Getting rid of poor performers is a quick and convenient way of papering over your organisational incompetence.
Papering over your incompetence.
You can’t reward poor performance? Too right.
How confident are you, that you’re earning what YOU deserve?
