"You want to know how to get a bunch of HR people in a tizzy? Tell them one of their managers has been failing to provide appropriate accommodations to an employee with disabilities. Just like that, you’ll see them rushing to their computers to type up memos and frantically calling for sensitivity trainings. Why is this such a hot button issue? Well, for one – discrimination of any kind is wrong. But in addition to that, disability discrimination can get a company into a lot of trouble. And fast. So if you want to avoid that panicked tizzy, educating yourself and your managers on how best to accommodate those employees with disabilities is key."

"Bullying. If you have kids between the ages of 5 and 15, you know that this is currently the buzzword being routinely uttered and discussed by all parents. Bullying is a big deal, and protecting our kids from bullies (or ensuring they don’t become the bullies) is a hot topic. But what about protecting your employees? Wait… what? Are we talking about grown adults, being bullied like grade-schoolers?"

"Ah, performance reviews. The time of year most supervisors loathe. Typically because it involves a lot of paperwork mucking up your other daily tasks, and because… no one likes to be the bearer of bad news. But performance reviews don’t have to be that awful. Sure, they are probably never going to be your favorite part of the job, but there are definitely ways you can make them less painful."

"High-performing companies have figured out ways to separate themselves from their peers. One key difference is a sharp focus on customers; another is a focus on employees. Yet 57% of companies concede that they have not always kept commitments to employees, and 33% admit failing to keep promises made to customers. That’s according to a global survey of 1,333 organisations conducted by the American Management Association and the Institute for Corporate Productivity."

In the context of hiring, there is a lot that can get you into trouble these days - even when you think you are doing everything by the book to protect your company. Hiring the wrong person for the right reasons can open you up to just as many issues as not hiring the right person for the wrong reasons. So let’s talk about how checking references can help – so long as you do it the right way."
