Employers that invest in good employee relations will reap the benefits of improved productivity, agility and efficiency.
Yet, it’s still overlooked – until there is a problem or crisis.
Positive employee relations are crucial whether you have a unionised or non-unionised workplace. Building and maintaining a meaningful, trusting relationship with your workforce takes time and effort and can be met cynicism – but it is worth it.
There are some common ingredients that play a part in creating a constructive employee relations climate. These include line management capability, policies and procedures, employee communication and consultation, and collective agreements, where applicable.
