Why Mitigating Risk Matters
by Deborah Muller
In a recent free HR webinar, I shared how organizations can mitigate employee related risk, and why it’s so important that they do so now. We’ve all seen the recent headlines: Uber, Wells Fargo, Fox News, the list goes on and on. Though each case is different, the outcome is similar- large organizations suffering serious brand, legal, and business damage as a result of situations with employees escalating beyond the organization’s ability to effectively control them. More than ever, every employee is a public relations specialist, and won’t hesitate to share their story publically if they don’t feel heard.
During the webinar session a variety of “must practices” were shared. Highlights include:
- The importance of process in determining how a situation will ultimately resolve.
- How to build a closer relationship with “people managers” to create a culture of accountability.
- Why controlling the investigatory process is so important, and specific tips to maintain it throughout the process.
Regardless of where you are in your journey—perhaps knee deep in retooling processes to address recent trends, perhaps creating processes for the first time as your company scales, or somewhere in between, the points covered in the session are a great place to start. HR Acuity provides solutions for organizations to create, track, and report on employee relations cases of all types.
