Employee Discipline

Discipline refers to a condition in the organization where employees conduct themselves in accordance with the organization’s rules and standards of acceptable behavior. For the most part, employees discipline themselves by conforming to what is considered proper behavior because they believe it is the reasonable thing to do. Once they are made aware of what is expected of them, and assuming they find these standards and rules to be reasonable, they seek to meet those expectations.

But not all employees will accept the responsibility of self-discipline. There are some employees who do not accept the norms of responsible employee behavior. Those employees, then, require some degree of extrinsic disciplinary action.

    Excellent blog Professor. I just heard your video talk on crisis management – brilliant! Will visit again and learn more.

    This post on employee discipline is to the point. However dealing with labor may lead to situations that become turbulent – in such cases neat structured solutions may not work.

    Thank you and kind regards.
