    Would APPEAR that MOST of the comments on this article from Federal Times would tend to indicate that PERHAPS MAYBE “we” MIGHT have a ways to go yet in making the federal government the employer of choice

    OPM director: Managers need options for dealing with poor performers

    If an employee is performing poorly, his manager should be able to hold back raises or step increases or take away annual leave, said John Berry, director of the Office of Personnel Management.

    That’s because managers now have only “one stick in the toolbox” when it comes to poor performers, Berry said: firing them. But that can be an arduous and difficult process, he said, and doesn’t allow for the poor performer to improve or encourage someone to work harder.

    “We need to empower our managers with a broader toolbox,” Berry said at the Human Capital Management-Federal conference in Arlington, Va., on Tuesday.
