Can one go through PIP twice in the same process?
Dear Friend,
It depends on the organizational systems. The Performance Improvement Plan is specifically improving the performance of the targeted employee/s. Most of the cases people are taking it in a negative way ie., plan related to bringing in improvement of low / poor performers but it's a wide range initiative.
A potential employee is being identified as a successor for a critical employee or a right fit for a critical position / task with some skill gaps then a detailed plan is structured in bridging the gap between the expected vs existing is a futuristic plan of improving the performance or a plan in carving / preparing a potential employee for taking higher responsibilities over a period of time by improving his performance.
In the case of first one ie., a Plan structured in improving the performance of a poor / low performer should not be more than one year with a structured evaluation process of every 3 months, the evaluation, feed back should be in writing duly signed by the employees, immediate superior, HOD & HR representative. In case the employee is improving and meeting the expectations of the management then it's ok or else after 3 such evaluations the employee should be given a clear communication to search for a job as he is going to be discontinued by the end of the year.
Some times such poor / low performer may opt for a change in his role & to that extent the management should give him an opportunity but this should be at the beginning not after completion of the entire year.
