ANSWER: The deadbeat employee!
I found this great article written in Golf Course Industry. Of course, the topic centers on golf course management. But even if you don't play golf or just play a mean game of putt putt — if you're an HR manager or manage employees you've got read it. Deadbeat employees infiltrate many companies, and this gives some great advice on how to manage employees who have sunk into the lackluster “poor performance” category. Apply the advice to your situation!
