When communicating with an employee, supervisors should make sure their feedback is clear and articulate. Below are two examples of common feedback, with suggestions on how to improve.
||Employee has a bad attitude
||Explain how the employee has a bad attitude, providing specific examples and dates. In the case of a performance improvement plan, give specific examples of what a better attitude might look like, as well as consequences for failing to improve.
|| Good Work
||Provide details on what was good about the work so that the employee knows how to duplicate those efforts and do more good work in the future.
Constructive feedback is not only important for maintaining engaged and informed employees, but also in defending the company in potential claims that may come after employment is terminated. For assistance on communicating clearly with your employees, please contact Nextep's HR Department.
