Employee & Labour Relations

Organizations must always be assessing the employee relations climate, whether unionized or not. It is imperative employees feel valued and that they truly are critical to the success of the enterprise. Although the goal is to have everyone aligned to move the organization forward there will be problems. Like a mountain with varying terrain, there will be workplace conflict. How the employer responds is just as important as to having mechanisms in place to avoid conflict. Handling difficult employee situations is one of the toughest jobs leaders encounter. Avoid costly litigation and comply with all legislative requirements through fair and effective resolution.
