Act Fair: Effective Discipline

Synopsis
Use this video-based training programme to equip your managers with the skills and knowledge they need to carry out effective disciplinary interviews. The A.C.T. F.A.I.R. approach to dealing with discipline illustrated in the drama video shows managers how to conduct informal disciplinary interviews that have a specific and measurable outcome. It shows managers why they should ‘ACT’ and how they should ‘ACT’. It also shows that ‘doing nothing’ is not an option

Developed by Hugh Murray, the A.C.T. F.A.I.R. mnemonic provides managers with a seven-step process for conducting informal disciplinary interviews with all types of employee. The dramatised video illustrates realistic disciplinary scenarios with completely different types of offender: a grumpy accountant who appears to have an attitude problem; a defiant young man who’s ignoring the company’s safety rules; a hard-pushed mother who’s always late for work. The programme shows that by using the same A.C.T. F.A.I.R. process, disciplinary interviews can be carried out in the same effective way - before the need for a formal warning and not in an adverserial way.
