Troubleshooting Personnel Problems

Dealing with personnel problems can be a sensitive and difficult task.

For example, an employee has a serious personal problem that must remain confidential but will impact store operations. Or you hear rumors of inappropriate behavior but you haven’t observed anything and no one has come forward with information. Perhaps a long-time employee in a key position has not grown with the job and now is becoming an impediment to the co-op’s growth. Or an employee has an anger management problem and her manager is afraid to give her feedback. You may have reason to believe a manager is dating one of his direct reports but when you asked him, he denied it.

Our consultants can help. In a confidential phone call, even at short notice, we can assist you in sorting through your options and strategizing a response. In the process, we’ll inform you of possible legal angles to the situation and advise you on whether to contact an attorney.
