Many CEOs say the employees of their business are it's greatest asset.
That may be true, especially when the business is doing well, but if your company's success is heavily reliant on the contribution of staff, then your employees may also be a potential liability.
Have you got an industrial relations strategy?
Most companies will have a business plan, but a vital component of any business plan is the ‘People Strategy’. If you operate in highly unionised environment, or your company employs staff under an Enterprise Agreement or Enterprise Award, your company may be prone to both covert and overt industrial activity.
An effective industrial relations strategy can help you maximise profits, minimise staffing costs, plan for unexpected business disruptions, and safeguard your business against ever changing legislative reforms. Don’t wait for an industrial dispute to arise, plan your industrial relations strategy and make it a key component of your business plan.
