In our business or personal lives, it’s probable that we sometimes step on other peoples’ toes. We’re only human, after all. As entrepreneurs and business owners, it’s also probable that there will be times when we need to handle a conflict or complaint brought to us by an employee or stakeholder. Whenever there’s a workplace issue, we need to follow some key actions and guidelines to effectively deal with conflict.
In this episode, I discuss how you can handle conflicts and complaints in the workplace. I examine why you may want to consider hiring an outside investigator when handling disputes in the workplace. I explain why you need to have a working knowledge of employment law whether you decide to hire an external investigator or not. I describe the Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM), the work that they do, and their guidelines for handling workplace investigations. I also underscore the importance of protecting all parties involved and highlight why you need to be detail-oriented when proceeding with an investigation.
“We have a lot to carry as business owners. What’s at risk are our reputation, livelihood, net worth, and the reputation of our team and the livelihood of families we’ve been entrusted with.” - Justin Goodbread
