Taking Corrective Action:

Corrective action is a process of communicating with the employee to improve attendance, unacceptable behavior or performance. No corrective action is required when the deviations are within acceptable limits. However, when the deviations go beyond the acceptable range, especially in the important areas, it demands immediate managerial attention so that deviations do not occur again and standards are accomplished.

Corrective action might involve training of employees if the production target could not be met. Similarly, if an important project is running behind schedule, corrective action might involve assigning of additional workers and equipment to the project and permission for overtime work.

  • Corrective action is a process of communicating with the employee to improve attendance, unacceptable behavior or performance.
  • Taking corrective action requires identifying the problem and implementing a potential solution.
  • In any business, at some point employers such as HR managers, managers or small business owners have to take corrective actions and/or discipline employees.
