Performance improvement plans are good but ONLY if the manager is committed to helping employees improve and owns the result of the improvement plan effort. Managers must engage in the performance improvement process as well. In a performance improvement plan, the manager should be asking themselves on each area of improvement, "How am I going to help them improve?" This could be training, education, coaching, continuous feedback, etc. Punishing employees and then handing them a piece of paper with "to dos" doesn't work.
