The article discusses that underperformers consume an organization's time and energy and hamper it from achieving the desired goals. It states that behavioral-based interviewing should be used to avoid hiring underperformers, and existing underperformers should be appropriately addressed to help increase their job performance and improve their behavior. As a last resort, the underperformer should be removed from the organization to create an opportunity to hire a new, high-performing employee.
