Bill Gates once said, “I will find a lazy person to do a hard job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do the job”. Interesting thought and I guess some truth to it. I have always operated under the belief that almost everything within the realm of HR is employee relations based. Examine all of the aspects of what HR Departments are responsible for and there is an employee relations issue. This week, we are going to jump into why effective employee relations is paramount for any organization.
