Employees are a company’s most valued asset. The most successful companies maximize their employees’ effectiveness by creating a fair and safe work environment. The way in which issues are managed — when they do arise — can not only impact individual employees but also affect the company’s brand and reputation. It’s critical that: employers listen to employees’ concerns; investigate unacceptable behavior; and ensure all employees are treated in a fair and consistent manner.
The human resources and employee relations role is quickly pivoting from an administrative function to a strategic role, i.e., defining and supporting the overall employee experience (EX) in partnership with senior management. Human resources professionals are increasingly expected to create and evangelize a vision of employee experience, while identifying the levers of employee motivation and productivity. With executives recognizing the strategic importance of employee experience, it’s increasingly critical for human resource professionals to have the tools to manage employee issues fairly.
