HR - it's not just about avoiding Employment Tribunals
Posted on 22nd November 2018 at 12:34
Another day brings me another tranche of social media posts from HR Consultancies offering to keep employers out of tribunals.
Is that really all HR is? Your secret weapon for getting rid of problem employees without falling foul of the law?
I have to be honest, HR that just focuses on avoiding the bad stuff makes makes me really sad. And it makes me angry too, and very frustrated with some of my profession. And I feel frustrated for employers who feel they are just going round the same hamster wheel, recruiting the wrong people, managing them ineffectively, and then deciding enough is enough and dismissing people.
HR should be delivering your business so much more than just keeping you out of trouble.
