Managing employees well enough to not only sustain a business but grow it and make it profitable is no small task. Traditional workplace worries such as employee theft, talent retention and acquisition, sexual harassment threats and racial and ethnic discrimination are more than enough to keep managers busy.
Now add an increased focus on the Family Medical Leave Act, the Affordable Care Act’s impact on benefit management and an amended Americans with Disabilities Act. How those concerns will mesh with the already problematic area of workers’ compensation will require more and more management resources. Depression and other employee mental health concerns are another increasing area of focus. Managing these risks while controlling costs will present an ongoing organizational challenge.
