Performance Improvement Plan: Julian

Happy four week anniversary at Kargas Inc Julian! We do hope that the staff has made you feel at home here and that you are enjoying your time with the organization.

Of course we are still getting to know you, but we do have some initial feedback about your performance.

There are some concerns.

As you may or may not know we have given a great deal of thought to the core Kargas Inc competencies required for success. They are as follows, Interpersonal Communication Skills, Creativity and Problem Solving Capabilities. We have evaluated you in each of these key areas.

Interpersonal Communication Skills:

Several staff members have expressed concern about their ability to communicate with you. In fact we have had multiple complaints from individuals who have stated they frequently have no idea what you are trying to tell them. They have described your communication style as abrasive and incoherent. Julian, this is a serious problem. How can we help you if you cannot tell us what you need? How can you contribute if your language is unintelligible?


You appear to be caught in a rut and we do not see you embracing a variety of tasks. We are concerned that you are only comfortable performing a narrow range activities and you don't seem to have any outside interests. We recommend that you try new things, get a hobby. Make a friend.

Problem Solving Capabilities:

Here at Kargas Inc. we require employees to come to us with solutions when they voice their concerns. We are certainly open to your feedback, but you need to take a proactive approach to problem solving. When you voice a concern we would like you to come to us with some constructive suggestions. At this point all we are hearing is a lot of negativity and complaining.

Julian, you are now on a Performance Improvement Plan. You have 18 years to address the above concerns. It's a good thing you're cute.


  1. In addition, there will be an off- site team brought in tomorrow evening from out-of-state to evaluate the above mentioned concerns. However, this team has a reputation of being very biased, so their advice should be taken "with a grain of salt". Past reviews from this off-site team have been unquestionably biased in favor of the employees and management must be certain to keep this in mind, and be wary of any unionization efforts promoted by these evaluators. They are from Wisconsin and there has been quite a bit of conern about unions in that state taking advantage of hard- working taxpayers.

  2. HA!!!! (1) That is one adorable baby. (2) You know I absolutely love Kargas Inc memos. (3) Marsha Shaw: awesome comment. (I am also from Wisconsin.)

  3. We were just discussing way to deepen career exploration for our independent study students and this is a great resource.Performance Improvement Plan Template
