Employee has a bad attitude? Here’s what you can do

On Behalf of | Dec 14, 2020 | Blog

As an employer, one of the most frustrating things to deal with is an employee with a bad attitude. You might have several complaints about the employee from their coworkers, or you might have seen their attitude first-hand. They might have been having a bad day, but if this is a persistent issue, it’s time to address it.

Your role as an employer is to balance the workplace and to make it a safe, comfortable environment to the best of your ability. If your employee is clearly having trouble, then you can:

  • Talk to them personally to address any concerns they may be dealing with
  • Explain how their attitude or actions have been affecting others
  • Encourage team-building exercises to work out trouble between co-workers who may not like each other or get along
  • Encourage a level of professionalism at work that you hold all employees to, so there aren’t misunderstandings or issues related to unprofessional conversations or actions

What should you do if you talk to the employee with no results?

Sometimes, people just don’t fit into a workplace’s culture. That’s okay because everyone is different. Your first step is to give them a warning about their behavior. You should also explain what you expect and why it’s expected of them.

If the employee does not improve after a formal warning, then you may want to start looking into terminating their role with the company. Sometimes, one person can really have a negative impact on the workforce, so decide if keeping them in their position is worth any arguments or conflicts that occur. If not, then it may be time to talk to your human resources department and to terminate the employee.
