Strategies for “Extreme HR”

 with Sue Graham Johnston, President, 128 Technology


Description

Most HR employee events feel like dramas, even when the issues are pretty mundane.  Have you considered what you would do if you’re asked to assist a manager in dealing with employee fraud or bribery, or even more emotional issues like a death in the workplace, suicide or sexual assault of a co-worker happens?  Or at the most extreme situation if lives are on the line with a kidnapping, robbery or shooting/threat of gun violence? You may not be able to rely on solely on a corporate policy to guide you and your executive team through how to respond. Not even the best written policy can comprehend all possible situations.

Through discussing real-life incidents experienced in the US, Europe and Africa, Sue Graham Johnston will facilitate a dialogue to help HR professionals debate the benefits and limitations of corporate policies and where judgment/empathy enter:

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Policies and training need to be in place, and are essential as they protect the company from liability and help employees understand compliant behavior.  Consider some of the key policies that protect your organization and your employees.
  2. Strategies for coaching employees through classic “he said/she said” situations – whether related to sexual assault or to other workplace incidents with few to no witnesses.
  3. Engage in a dialogue about how HR and business leaders can partner to ensure that policy compliance doesn’t outweigh human compassion in difficult situations and consider cultural contexts that may be different.
  4. Discuss the role of 3rd party resources – counseling services for individuals or teams, or safety critical services if working in high crime regions
