When employee performance does not meet expectations managers must engage in the task of corrective action. In this session, managers learn the steps of positive corrective action. This is not a specific system within state government, but rather, a common-sense approach that puts the responsibility for improvement on the employee and the manager in a supportive role rather than an accusatory one. Such an approach puts the responsibility for improvement on the employee and the manager in a supportive role rather than an accusatory one. Such an approach results in improved employee performance and motivates the employee to do a better job.
