5 Tips for Effective Documentation
with a COVID Spin

presented by Ann Smith


Thorough documentation is a critical part of performance management. Proper documentation during a Pandemic can be just as critical. It’s also a vital component when building an employer’s defense against complaints. While an absence of documentation can be devastating to an employer’s defense, poorly written documentation can be just as damaging. Learn WHAT to say and HOW to frame the feedback message to correct performance deficiencies and if necessary provide a legal basis for discipline.


  1. Review and discussion of the 5 tips for effective documentation
  2. Learn how to effectively prepare legally sound documentation for problematic conduct
  3. Receive multiple strategies to change employee behavior through documentation
