I had almost ten people die in my friend group in the second half of 2020 and I got very depressed and started performing poorly at work. I didn’t tell my higher ups until it became an issue. I thought I could get through it and plus I figured they wouldn’t care.. It was decided that I get put on a PIP. Lesson learned to communicate.. 🙁 Anyone have tips for getting back on the right track

Died how? Covid?

Thank u mck 2 ☺️

I agree with the lesson learned to communicate, but that's still really rough. I'm surprised they didn't just ask you to take a leave of absence to get yourself together after going through that instead of going right to a PIP. I'm really sorry OP - that's terrible.

Thanks FTI 1. I wish there was better communication about this. The lack of empathy was so unprofessional.

OP Sorry to hear of all of your loss! I’ve never been on a PIP but I have had to administer them. I would say improve performance much faster than the plan, keep track of your recent accomplishments and let the boss know it was a wake up call.

Probably so. Just do what you’re capable of as a top performer and you will be good

Sorry to hear that! Question though - what is PIP?

Performance improvement plan

Did you eventually explain why your performance was impacted? If you did I’m sure that will be taken into consideration during this period. Agree, that if your performance picks up and returns to normal this will be just a blip in your career. I took over a PIP from another manager (the manager got deployed) for someone who ended up working for me and I never held it against them.

D1 yes I fully explained. I’m doing the whole 9 and worked w their mental health group (ey assist) and they found an outside person for me to speak with-it’s going well. However, when I spoke with talent and with my counselor throughout this process it has felt very disingenuous.

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
