Be Nice to your Colleague and They will be the same to you !! But is this always true 



Relations are the most tough to handle in this world as well as easy too. At home it is all well sometimes although office is the place wherein you develop new relations get developed and maintaining good relations at office is very important. Since times the relationship between employer and employee was governed by the assumption that employers were like kings and were free to offer any terms of employment and treat their employees in any way they dictated, and the employees were free to either accept or reject those terms. There were few laws and protections available to employees that would safeguard their interests at times of manipulation, shabby treatment, defamation, discrepancies, retaliation, unfair practices, etc. Employees did not have a platform to voice their protests. Today, employees and job applicants are protected by various federal and state laws. Many state courts have recognized additional employee rights that have not been set out in written statutes, but instead are part of common law, based solely upon earlier court rulings. Employers no longer have the right to treat their employees any way they desire. Employees have the right to protest, make claims, file litigation, and seek damages, if they believe they have been mistreated at any stage of the employment relationship. Employee Relations involves the body of work concerned with maintaining employer-employee relationships that contribute to satisfactory productivity, motivation, and morale.   Essentially, Employee Relations is concerned with preventing and resolving problems involving individuals who arise out of or affect work situations.

Advice is provided to supervisors on how to correct poor performance and employee misconduct.   In such instances, progressive discipline and regulatory and other requirements must be considered in effecting disciplinary actions and in resolving employee grievances and appeals.   Information is provided to employees to promote a better understanding of management's goals and policies.  Information is also provided to employees to assist them in correcting poor performance, on or off duty misconduct, and/or to address personal issues that affect them in the workplace.  Employees are advised about applicable regulations, legislation, and bargaining agreements.   Employees are also advised about their grievance and appeal rights and discrimination and whistleblower protections.

Maintaining healthy employee relations in an organization is a pre-requisite for organizational success. Strong employee relations are required for high productivity and human satisfaction. Employee relations generally deal with avoiding and resolving issues concerning individuals which might arise out of or influence the work scenario. Strong employee relation depends upon healthy and safe work environment, cent percent involvement and commitment of all employees, incentives for employee motivation, and effective communication system in the organization. Healthy employee relations lead to more efficient, motivated and productive employees which further lead to increase in sales level.

The rest of your resume can include any of the following elements. Again, choose those which sell you as an employee relations executive the best.

Work experience not related to employee relations, science or math : This element is optional because your employee relations experience is what interests the recruiters. List these jobs in reverse chronological order.

Career Objective: This is a statement of what kind of job you're seeking. Example: To obtain a Math position in a secondary school with the opportunity to coach softball, track or swimming.

Honors and Activities: If you have some impressive honors, or activities which relate to employee relations, you can list them.

Special Skills: Fluency or proficiency in foreign languages, use of calculators or mathematics software etc.

Professional Preparation/Development: Special workshops, seminars etc. you've attended.

Professional Memberships: List those professional associations to which you

Speak your mind and heart. As a manager, you need to speak up and say what you think. As obvious as this point seems, people have a difficult time articulating their needs, wants and desires. This exacerbates the conflict because the communication gets distorted and people become frustrated. An example of this would be an employee who is very upset with their manager's management style. He goes to the manager to discuss how he feels, but, instead of focusing on the issue, the manager brings up other issues, which distorts the communication and frustrates the employee. Remember, instead of avoiding the problem, address it and speak up.
