Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel? How to deal with incompetence


You can't fire an employee for poor performance overnight. However, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. You can terminate an incompetent employee if he or she continues to be unable to perform the way you would expect at the end of a remedial process, even if the employee has been with the company for several years. And while dismissal for incompetence is an administrative measure, there is nothing to prevent you from taking a mixed approach, i.e. imposing disciplinary measures before finally administratively closing the file of an employee who is unable to improve his or her work performance. But whatever approach you choose, it is important to remember that the shortest route to incompetence is not always the best.
