I've been managing a team of 10 over the last year and there's one particular person who has had repeated errors, doesn't meet goals and hasn't been a great fit for her it. Essentially, it was time to part ways with this employee who was not quite up to the specific tasks assigned to her.
A few weeks ago, I emailed HR, explained the situation, and requested that they send me the specific process of giving her a 30-day performance improvement plan -- while asking about termination steps, if I ended up having to take that route down the line.
Ironically, HR manager and the person I was having difficulty with have the first same name. I forgot to take her name off the email. The email went to her.... She quit by the end of the day.
I know... Talk about making a mistake!
What would you do if you were on the tail-end of this email? Quit?
What would you do if you were me?
