Ramsdens Solicitors conducted a survey of more than 200 employers to gauge their confidence in dealing with a number of day-to-day issues. Of the 222 responses, 88 employers said they had adjusted their stance and had treated staff with leniency in relation to poor behaviour and performance, due to a lack of available candidates and difficult recruitment.

David Bradley, Head of Employment and Chairman of Ramsdens Solicitors, said: “The results of the survey cause particular concern in relation to employers appearing to tolerate poor performance and behaviour. This may impact both customer service and relations with co-workers. While businesses may be reacting to the current environment, not tackling poor performance and behaviour is likely to undermine the values employers regard as important and impact the long-term performance of the organisation.”

Ramsdens Solicitors' Employment team invite you to a free training webinar where our team will be looking at what’s new in Employment law and how to better handle difficult situations.

Our speakers will discuss our recent survey which revealed a lack of confidence amongst employers in handling a range of processes in the workplace.

They will also look at tackling poor performance particularly in light of the difficulty in recruiting and give you an update on the latest employment law cases affecting your business.

The webinar is aimed at directors or HR professionals involved in the management of people resource and work-force planning.
