How to Fire/Terminate and Employee (Comprehensive) PowerPoint Presentation 141 slides with Participant Handout

Knowing when to fire an employee and letting go of a problem employee is easier said than done. These reasons include sexual harassment, unethical behavior, poor job performance, or excessive absences. But beware of illegal reasons for firing– such as their immigration status, retaliation, or refusal of lie detector testing – before moving forward with the termination process. Firing hastily or without taking the proper steps could lead to a costly legal impact.

Did you know that... 77% of companies worldwide do not feel they have the right human resources skills to address issues including retention and engagement. 63% of employees worldwide are "not engaged"—that is, they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort. Moreover, 24% are “actively disengaged”—unhappy, unproductive, and likely to spread negativity to co-workers. Preventable turnover cost employers with 10,000 employees is $62 million in Canada; and $75 million in the US. Employees working in not-for-profit organizations were most engaged (72%). Employees working in government reported the lowest rate of engagement among co-workers.
77% of senior managers want to raise their level of employee engagement, but only 41% of them communicate personally with employees about plans and goals on a regular basis. 84% of employees in the U.S. claim their relationship with their boss is the top determining factor for whether they try to move up in the company—or find work elsewhere. If this stat doesn’t convince you to explore solutions to your employee engagement problem, nothing will: companies with engaged employees outperform those without by up to 202%.
