When your employee does not perform at the expected level and does not respond to informal feedback, a performance improvement plan (PIP) may be required to get them back on track. This is where LegalVision’s free PIP template comes in.

The PIP template helps you to identify which areas the employee needs to improve. You can then include:

  • the action plan;
  • appropriate timeframes;
  • improvement examples;
  • manager review notes; and
  • employee acknowledgement.

Ideally, you should develop the plan together with your employee to ensure you have their buy-in, and that they understand the outcomes if their performance does not improve.

Once your PIP is in place and both parties have signed it, you should:

  • monitor your employee’s performance; and
  • meet with them regularly (e.g. weekly) to discuss their progress.

Finally, as the deadlines fall due, meet with the employee to discuss how their performance has improved and, if necessary, any areas that still require improvement. Update the plan accordingly.
