HR Values Framework

Ethics is an essential aspect of any business, big or small. While companies have policies in place to prevent misconduct, there are still ethical dilemmas that arise in the workplace.

There are often times when something happens in the business that's not technically a policy violation but poses an ethical conundrum. As an HR professional or small business owner, it's essential to be prepared to handle such situations. 

These are things that are not black or white but fall in the gray area but nonetheless demand a decision be made because there are some consequences.

It's important to have a plan to help you navigate these situations way before they happen.

Tune in to this episode as Sommer and I go through the framework for making these ethical and moral decisions in the While We Were Working section of the episode.

In the consultant's corner segment, Sommer and I dive deep into a tricky situation becoming more prevalent with remote working.

The remote work era has brought about significant changes in the way we work, with many companies opting for flexible work arrangements that allow employees to work from home or remotely.

While remote work has many benefits, including increased flexibility and reduced commute times, it also presents its own set of challenges. One such challenge is the increasing prevalence of employees who work multiple jobs.

As an employer, this can be a tricky situation to navigate, with concerns around productivity, distractions, and conflicts of interest.

We explore the reasons why employees work multiple jobs and the approaches employers can take to manage this situation effectively.
