Your employer is likely worried about lawsuits, complaints, claims, and charges. So you ramp up your HR department, which includes sending HR staff to frequent training, including training in how to solve management problems. This is a highly recommended approach, but it’s usually the managers, not HR that causes potentially damaging employee issues. Because it’s the managers that interact with employees. Employees don’t typically go to HR until AFTER there’s a problem. Realistically, by the time a problem gets to HR, they are being called on to clean up the mess or limit the damage.
It’s never HR that will 100% determine how many such employment challenges an employer faces, rather it’s their managers who will determine how many lawsuits, complaints, claims, and charges a company faces – or not. Managers are the persons who interact with your employees on a day-to-day basis and make the decisions that affect employee’s lives and subsequently affect the company.
That is why we are offering a Proactive HR training course that is specifically designed to be viewed by the individuals within your company that manage staff. Think of it as preventative maintenance. If you skip maintenance, you may get lucky enough to coast along with no problems – for a while…. Eventually, though, you can be certain something will break and consequently the costs to repair will be higher. This webinar will teach managers how to recognize, avoid and handle the biggest HR compliance risks while creating a productive workplace environment.
