Letting go of a toxic employee, even if they’re a top performer

Toxic employees have a negative impact on your team. They can disrupt team dynamics, lower morale, hurt productivity, increase turnover and disrupt company culture. But what if that toxic employee is a top performer? While the toxic employee may bring value and revenue to your organization, the damage created does not justify keeping them. By the time you consider letting your high performing, toxic employee go, you’ve probably had many conversations with them about their behavior and likely created an action plan for improvement. If the person isn’t willing to change their behavior, or incapable of doing so, it’s time to sever ties. This is especially true when this person is long tenured. Don’t be afraid to take action.
