What To Do When You Have To Write Up An Employee

You know what HR pros and leaders hate more than anything!? When hiring managers want to fire someone, they walk into our office, ready to fire the employee, yet they haven't actually done anything to actually ensure we can do it legally, ethically and morally!

We don't hire to fire, but every once in a while, the employee will let us know that they are no longer willing to do what is necessary to maintain employment and at that point, it's mostly up to our hiring managers to do the right thing. How and what should they do? That is what this episode of TalentTalks is all about!

Both as a hiring manager and as an HR leader, I never want to be in a position where I'm coming to an employee to terminate them and the employee is shocked by this conversation. Never! That is the worst. I'm not in the “gotcha” game, I'm in the leadership game. And as a leader, I don't do “gotcha” if at all possible! This video cuts right to the heart of what we need as HR professionals, but also to exactly what and how we need our leaders to act when dealing with an employee who needs to be written up!
