Employee relations is what most people think of when they think of HR. It encompasses all the areas that involve the management of your workforce and day-to-day regulations concerning your employees. It includes areas such as your policies, new hire and termination paperwork, law compliance, reviews, conflict resolution, handbooks, leaves and much more.
Handling your HR and employee relations accurately and consistently keeps you in compliance, helps you avoid penalties and lawsuits, and gives both you and your employees peace of mind. Making a mistake when it comes to this area of your business can be risky and costly. Both your employees and your business need to be taken care of. Doing it right increases your retention and improves your culture, two things that have a significant impact on your bottom line.
