Formal Performance Warning – Sample
When corrective feedback hasn’t worked to improve employee performance, a more formal warning that clearly informs the employee that her job is in jeopardy is usually the next step.
Here is an example of a formal performance warning in writing, which illustrates how you might:
- Be clear about where things stand and possible consequences
- Be as specific as possible about the level of performance you’re looking for
- Incorporate the “why” so the staff member knows why the bar is high
- Be direct while still being kind
