Any Recent Changes?

3. Are there recent changes with the staff?
When new team member comes on board, it can be threatening to someone who has been there for a while.
Keep people informed ahead of time and it will likely be better for everyone.  There usually is not a sign telling us what is ahead, make one!
Ask your supervisor to intervene and support you.
Discipline issues only when the supervisor intercedes.

Personal Issues in Your Staff?

2. Is the employee experiencing personal problems?
If an employee is experiencing personal problems, make sure your source of this information ONLY comes from the employee.
Do NOT use gossip or hearsay when dealing with these situations.
If they just want you to know that they are going through
a tough time with a spouse, then you should recommend counseling or an Employee Assistance Program, if one is provided.

Good Workers in Your Family

1. Has the person been a good worker in the past?
If they have been able to perform their duties in the past, then chances are they can replicate that ability again.
Ask yourself if there is something physical that has happened to the individual that they have mentioned.

Pay attention for changes in their attitude and behaviors.
