What are some common performance issues (at least 3) discussed in the readings or that you found online? What is HR’s role in handling these issues? Use a minimum of two references. Common performance issues discussed and related to our readings were; Constantly Late or Leaves Early. “While we know that flexible schedules can provide a work-life balance, managing this flexible schedule is key. Some employees may take advantage and, instead of working at home, perform nonwork-related tasks instead” ( Delph, M., N.D.). “Employees who are chronically tardy can cause just as many problems as those who don’t show up at all. Shifts can get backed up, co-workers may be forced to work overtime, customers could be left in the lurch. Use the following tips when you’re faced with a chronically late employee: √ Talk with the employee after every late arrival, giving him or her a chance to explain the reason. √ Counsel employees who are excessively tardy to try to pinpoint what is causing the problem. Warn them that continued late arrivals can lead to discipline, up to termination. √ Put all comments—yours and the employee’s—in writing, regardless of whether disciplinary action is taken. √ Be sure to distinguish between excused and unexcused tardiness in your records. √ Explain that unexcused tardiness has a negative effect on performance appraisals that affects raises, promotions, and continued employment. √ Spell out penalties for excessive tardiness completely and be sure employees understand them. √ Set improvement goals and dates for when you expect to see improvement in their ability to arrive on time.” (Business Management Daily, 2016) Too Much Time Spent Doing Personal Things at Work. “Most companies have a policy about using a computer or phone for personal use. For most companies, some personal use is fine, but it can become a problem if someone doesn’t know where to draw the line” ( Delph, M.,N.D.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
