This Employee Doesn't Get It, What Do I Do?

Every employee I've ever had have made mistakes. The great ones made a mistake, got corrected, and then never made that mistakes again. Then average ones made mistakes a few times, learned how to do it right, and eventually stopped making those mistakes. Then there are employees who just don't seem to get it no matter how many times they're show the right way. Sometimes, it's a matter of them just not being able to understand, but sometimes, it seems to be laziness or lack of motivation.

How do you handle junior employees who just can't seem to get with the program?
