Managing Staff Performance: Disciplinary & Capability Procedures


As a manager, it is your responsibility to motivate staff and enable them to achieve the best possible results. Most of this is achieved in your informal day to day management and support of employees. However, problems sometimes arise and tools such as the University’s Capability, Disciplinary and Grievance procedures are there to support you and your staff in resolving a particular situation – they all include guidance about both informal and, where necessary, formal actions. This session is aimed at managers who wish to know more or refresh their knowledge about how and when these procedures can be used.
