Being an employer can be frustrating – the rules employers need to follow seem to only increase in variety and complexity, and some employees do the darnedest things. But BT Currents readers should also realize: There are a lot of things that can be done proactively to minimize employee issues. I just wrote this short article trying to pump up employers who are feeling a little down in the dumps. Employers really can handle the challenges before them, focusing on three things:
- Plain old good proactive, mission-focused management goes a long way to employee liability prevention.
- Each employee “move” has a correct countermove; you just have to play the game.
- Never underestimate the value of good hiring. How many times have you thought, I never should have hired that guy?
