    What to do with an employee who does not want to improve himself and is always taking the shelter of his powerful father?

    I am the manager of a private company. One of the employees in our company, who belongs to a wealthy and influential family, is never doing his work properly and inspite of many warnings regarding the same, does not want to improve at all. He is always taking the shelter of his powerful father and this could ruin his future. What can be done with such an employee?

    You being a manager has the duty to look after the team and its members
    Also you have to make sure that the team does well
    In this case you have already given arnings to the employee and still he has not improved
    Try to speak to him once more
    Give him written warning with a timeline within which he needs to improve his performnce
    If he still does not improve or make any effort to improve than you can discuss this issue with senior management as to what action can be taken against him

    Hello Friend,

    Well, if a person is not ready to improve himself there is very little you can do. Each individual is different and their style of work is different too. Some love to take additional responsibility and some run away from responsibility. Morever, he belongs to a wealthy family so he thinks he can do anything and nobody can do aby harm to him. You should talk to him and try to convince him to improve his skills and work. You should also inform him that until and unless he improves his work he will be monitored by some individual from office. You should to emply a carrot and stick policy if you want to change the person's perceptio of work.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    There are some persons in most of the organisations who are very influential & don't take interest in office works.They use time in leadership & flattering the higher official.In order to deal such person,you can do as per the provision of act.There is nothing wrong in it,but you should see your safety also.So it will be better to discuss the matter with your boss & proceed according to his guidance.

    If one employee is in such category,it is good & bad both for the organisation.It is good in the sense that he can be used for any approach for sake of the organisation & it is bad in the sense that others may give example of him for not working.

    So see the situation of your safety & proceed further.

    Thanks & good luck.

    hello,
    as you are the manager you are having total powers whether to place him in that job or throw him from that job and find a new one to apt that job.if he so aggressive gather some information regarding the work he does in the office and if any one come in favor of him then show them the proofs you collected against him so that they will shut their mouths.
    this is the thing should be done to every individual who are doing the same thing and the organisations always entertain these type of people in that job eventhough he is not eligible.so please give a job to the person who is well apted to that post eventhough he is from poor background and he knows what is the value of money and work better than those people who are rich.
    thank you..............

    As per my views these people should be left in their position because if you go to teach them then they will not understand the thing because he is not getting the worst situation of his life and when he or she came to know the same things or every he interact with the situation which is unexpectable then he will understand the need of hard work and improvement in life.
    Right now he is not getting the worst things as he is getting everything without any efforts and that is not good for him as this will make him handicapped and when he feels the necessity of the food and there is no one to feed him then he will see the dufference and after that he will try to get away from that position and likes to work hard to get the food for him and that tastes different when you earn it from the things that you are getting feed.
    So you need to leave that person in his own situation because life is a things that teach lessons to everyone in the world and they respect the work and life for the same.
