Our current campaign “Let’s Talk” focuses on the concept of difficult conversations in the workplace and aims to help you and your colleagues address tricky conversations directly.
Addressing an employee’s bizarre personal habits or gaudy Hawaiian shirts often falls to the bottom of an HR’s or owner / manager’s priority lists because they are embarrassed to confront the issue. However, avoiding awkward but necessary conversations can create bigger problems for the future, not just between the individual and management, but for co-workers too. It can lead to office gossip, low employee morale or even a trip to the Employment Tribunal.
Likewise, entering into a potentially tricky conversation with an employee without proper preparation can lead to disastrous exchanges and from there, accusations of unfair treatment and discrimination.
Our campaign webpage will be updated regularly and will act as your handy guide to tackling difficult conversations in all aspects of your work and personal life. Use our hashtag #LetsTalkHR to get involved or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us help you tackle these tricky conversations head-on.
