Positive Employee Relations have become all the rave over the last few years. While most companies who provide this training have a focus on avoiding unionization, we customize our training to each client in an effort to teach leadership how to show care and concern for their team members. When your culture becomes one of community, care and trust, your employees will become engaged and functioning in a state where they are motivated to contribute to the companies success. They give their best and make additional efforts to accomplish important tasks in order to reach goals. In this state unions will be less likely to succeed with their tempting propaganda. This training does not solely focus on union tactics, Do’s and Don’ts, and NLRB. We choose to approach Positive Employee Relations around the human element of ensuring your team members needs are met. Because we know that commitment occurs naturally once needs are fulfilled.
