Stories and Lessons From Real Life Employee Relations Scenarios


Program Overview

Just when an HR professional thinks they know what their day is going to look like, an employee walks in with an employee relations issue that throws off the entire day, if not the week or more. Employee relations issues are unpredictable and complex. In this session, we will use real life scenarios as a way to teach practical tips for how to handle employee relations issues promptly, thoroughly and effectively. This will be an engaging session strongly encouraging participation from attendees. You are strongly encouraged to bring your toughest cases for discussion with the group! Also included in the session will be best practices for conducting a defensible and useful investigation.
