68 Examples of Performance Problems

Performance problems are workplace issues caused by the performance of an individual. This implies a situation that calls for management action such as a performance improvement plan, disciplinary action or dismissal. Performance problems are assessed according to the recent contributions of an individual and the nature of their role. For example, a salesperson who takes very long lunch breaks probably isn't an issue as long as they are closing sales, following up with customers and generally fulfilling their role. The following are illustrative examples of performance problems.

For high performers, performance problems mostly relate to professionalism, ethical behavior and compliance. For example, if your top software developer is late for meetings they may deserve significant leniency. For low performers, issues mount and behavior such as tardiness can be a problem.
