If we are being honest I think any business owner would say at some point in their career they will have experienced some tricky HR issues.

Of course in an ideal world, we’d never have to worry about “people” issues, as we would have engaged employees who are passionate about helping the business reach its full potential!  However,  I did say in an ideal world and as a realist I know that sometime things don’t have a tendency to work out that way.

Below we list 3 steps that will help you take control if you have found yourself with a complex and confusing employee issue and need to be focused on finding a solution.

1. Employment law

Remember employment legislation exists for a reason.  It is there to protect you, your employees and your businesses and ensures that standards are upheld.  If you are handling an HR issue it is imperative that the very first thing you do is to consider your legal obligations and responsibilities.

2. HR guidance

Sometimes, knowing the law is just not enough, especially if you are dealing with a particularly complex or sensitive issue.  You may need extra help and support to make sure that concerns are dealt with correctly and within a specific time-frame. This is where HR Revolution can help, we are HR professionals who deal with people issues everyday, so we have the knowledge and expertise to assess any situation and deliver you the best possible solution.

3. Stop repeating the same mistakes

Ok, so you’ve handled your HR issue and come out the other side breathing a sigh of relief and it’s back to business.  Actually this is a great time to take a step back and assess, what lessons have you learnt? how can you prevent this happening again?  Issues are inevitable and what really matters is the ability to handle the situation in a way which best serves your employees and your business.
