Managing Employees

An efficient and committed workforce is essential for any business that wants to succeed and managing your employees well is key to achieving this.

Successful businesses are those with good employee relations and who know how to manage employees fairly and consistently. When issues do arise, whether poor conduct or performance, grievances or time off due to sickness or pregnancy, as an employer, you need to be ready to manage these promptly and effectively and in accordance with your obligations.

You, and your managers, should be able to recognise where risks could arise and how best to tackle managing your staff in order to minimise the risk of claims to the employment tribunal and without causing matters to escalate internally.
