Free Report for HR Managers: Not a Ticket to Slide

Old Saybrook, CT—October 13, 2011—The HR Daily Advisor® announced today the release of a free leadership report for HR managers, Not a Ticket to Slide: 7 Most Common Accountability Excuses, which will help employers to hold employees accountable for their results.

According to Rick Lepsinger, president of OnPoint Consulting, and author of Closing the Execution Gap: How Great Leaders and Their Companies Get Results, 40 percent of senior and mid-level leaders report that employees in their organizations are not being held accountable for results, and 20 percent report that managers in their organizations do not deal with poor performers. This exclusive special report takes a look at several misconceptions and misunderstandings that managers have about dealing with performance issues – and the best response for each situation.

“Accountability excuses echo from cubicles, C-suite offices, and factory floors throughout the land. However, they may be causing more damage than you think,” explained HR Daily Advisor Editor Stephen Bruce, PHR. “Allowing excuses such as ‘No one told me the project was due Friday!’ or ‘It’s not our department’s responsibility to pick up the slack when another department drops the ball,’ not only reward poor performance – they also hurt your top performers, who have to pick up the slack. This report is critical reading for everyone dealing with accountability problems in their workplace.”
