The Application of HR Technology in Labor Relations

The Application of HR Technology in Labor Relations
May 22, 2013 at 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET
Damon Lovett, Sr. Consultant, HR Transformation & Technology(KnowledgeSource)
HR Information is a powerful thing. It can tell stories about the overall health and state of the workforce and allow leaders to drive business growth through the engagement & productivity of the most valuable asset: The Employee.

When employees are not engaged, they tend to leave. When they are dissatisfied with one thing or another related to their job/work environment (i.e., inequitable pay, poor management practices, lacking communications, etc.), they unionize. What do they want? They want an environment that is rich in opportunity and provides them with all the characteristics that make up an equitable, committed style & approach to management. They need leadership that pays attention and understands the labor landscape.

Contrary to popular belief, employees don’t unionize because of union influence – they unionize because they feel their employer can do better but either a) doesn’t care about their concerns or b) simply chooses not to improve employment conditions. When leaders treat employees like humans, employees don’t need costly outside representation. Simply put: If you take care of your employees as well as you take care of yourself, then you have little to fear from unions as it is unlikely your employees will see much value in paying an expensive intermediary to deal with you.

In this session, we will take a look at:

1.       Why union avoidance policies are not enough!
2.       How to use HR Information to understand and address workforce trends that lead to unionization.
3.       How to apply technology (HR Tech & Social Media solutions) to elevate employee engagement, productivity, and retention!
