Proposed Actions Affecting HR Look into Hiring and On-Boarding Examine termination policies and how they are communicated to employees Look into management practices of supervisors
Proposed Actions Affecting Supervisors Distinguish which supervisors have management practices that are harmful/helpful to work environment Look to develop standard management objectives Ensure employees have clear understanding of responsibilities and expectations
Barriers Social norms HR and supervisors resistant to change Lack of funding for further analysis and intervention Lack of time in hiring process Legalities
Final Conclusions Due to the financial impact we would suggest looking first into the communication during and processes around hiring and on-boarding.
