Life After PIP

One of the biggest concerns for anyone who has received a PIP is about how it may effect their future job prospects. The answer is, no, a PIP does not need to follow you around. You can (and will) find a fresh start and a thriving career if you want it. 

Remember, a PIP is about both employee and employer. When you change jobs, your employer is changing, so the situation leading to the PIP is very different.

As you reflect on your next role, it’s worthwhile to allocate some time to reflect: 

  • Collect feedback from others: at the minimum, save a copy of your PIP and figure out what feedback there is transferable to another job.
  • Collect feedback from yourself: Write down your reflections: what did you enjoy (or not) about your past work experience. What types of projects and people were fun for you?
