What is a PIP (Performance Improvement Plan)?


If an individual is perceived to be underperforming in their job, the employer may decide to place them on a performance improvement plan, commonly referred to as a PIP.

Under a PIP an individual is usually given set goals which they have to achieve in a specified time frame.

The employer will usually arrange for regular reviews with the individual to see how they are getting on and whether their targets or goals have been achieved. If, at the end of the PIP, the individual has not shown sufficient improvement, the employer may move to terminating the contract. However, each case depends on its own facts.
