Benoit Consulting’s blog covers a wide variety of employee relations challenges facing today’s HR professionals.
TOXIC EMPLOYEE – or Bully?
Do you have one department that doesn’t seem to be on board with your desired culture? Do you have a powerful or controlling employee who is leading your other employees in the wrong direction? Or, is there an employee you are afraid to confront?
Benoit Consulting can help you diagnose the source of the problem, both the cultural issues and the personal styles that may be interfering with the achievement of desired results. Let us help you craft a respectful intervention strategy that solves the problem and minimizes the threat of litigation.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT – It’s not Just About Compliance
Compliance-focused, one-time staff training alone will not control the risk of this stubborn counter-productive behavior. Leaders must participate in additional, special training that helps them respond swiftly and appropriately to every accusation AND to help the company shift negative behaviors. Further, general training must include onsite discussions and questions. Discussing scenarios is not enough because doing so only scratches the surface of what your employees are reluctant to speak up about.
DYSFUNCTIONAL CULTURE – Begin to Shift This Today!
Like most companies, it’s probably been a while since you refreshed or communicated your company values . . . or even thought about doing so. Whatever the case, when you begin to have concerns about the overall openness of your workplace culture and whether employees are reluctant to speak up, it’s a sign for you to take action.
Benoit Consulting starts by assessing your current culture, comparing your workplace to cultural component benchmarks that either encourage positive interactions and the achievement of goals or that fuel dysfunctional gossip and distraction. We then work with you to guide your company toward overall more positive, healthier standards.
