Question 1 of 32

If you had an under performing auditor, what would you say to him or her, to help boost their performance?

"I have handled situations previously with under performing auditors. I follow a particular schedule when it comes to coaching, documenting, and then taking corrective behaviour if needed. I try to be an encourager first and will get to know why the auditor is struggling. I like to make a plan of action with the auditor so they are accountable for their own performance."
