The greatest business plan in the world is worthless without positive employees who are willing to put in the work necessary to move the business forward.
All too often, businesses built on sound ideas crumble because of a failure to create a positive relationship with employees. Instead, they fall prey to unmotivated employees, workplace unrest or lawsuits from employees who claim they were mistreated.
Thankfully, creating a positive work environment is not as difficult as it may seem.
The Most Cost-Effective Approach
Defending against discrimination lawsuits, sexual harassment lawsuits and other lawsuits is expensive. Addressing OSHA violations can be costly. Dealing with a unionized workforce can be difficult. Instead, it tends to be more cost-effective to proactively address the root causes of these problems before they actually become problems.
The goal is to create a positive environment where employees are rewarded and recognized, to set clear expectations and give them a management team they can count on. An experienced employment law attorney can help to create such an environment.
The Five Pillars
A lawyer can help create the five pillars that a positive workplace is built on:
- Comprehensive, functional human resources self-audits
- Management training
- Routine counsel
- Maintenance and updates to policies and procedures
- Dispute resolution
From reviewing current policies and procedures to training your management team to resolving the disputes that do arise in the most efficient and effective manner, you can benefit from the strength of a respected employment law attorney.
