I think one of my newer team members is following the PD path. She was out yesterday (scheduled day off) and we had to take care of two of her tasks that were due. When working on those tasks, it was discovered that she had received some mail pertaining to one of the tasks 10 days ago, but hadn't done anything with it, and hadn't sent out some mail pertaining to the other task. Both tasks had to be delayed, which could possibly cause some compliance issues down the road. Apparently her list of tasks is backlogged by about two weeks, as well. Our business protocol is that we follow up on mail within 3 business days, send mail two days prior to it being due, and keep our tasks backlogged by no more than 2 days. Oh, and she's still on probation, having just finished her training in November.
I don't think she's going to have a very happy Monday, since our supervisor was the one who discovered most of the problems!
