Employee Relations Assessment and Improvement
Human Resources Advisors Consultants and Associates provide assessments of your employee relations climate.
Poor employee relations drains energy from your organization and results in:
- Decreased Productivity
- Higher Costs
- Discrimination Complaints
Employees expect the leadership of the organization to know and respond to issues in the workplace.
Employees express dissatisfaction in many ways ... poor productivity, tardiness or lack of engagement in the business. If they feel management is not listening and/or not responding to the issues, they may take other avenues for relief. This results in turnover, complaints to local, state and federal agencies (DOL, EEOC, etc.), lawsuits, and other disruptive actions.
Employees expect solutions!
People expect the management staff to resolve the underlying problems that plague the organization and cause employee dissatisfaction.
Are you seeing the signals?

Early detection and corrective action are the best remedies.
Lawsuits and agency actions are expensive. They are like a cancer on essential elements of your organization. Early detection of employee dissatisfaction and corrective action are the most effective means of restoring or enhancing a healthy climate in your organization.
