The Rise of the Difficult Employee
In a recent article of the same name, SHRM.org explored “The Rise of the Difficult Employee.” Recent data suggests that the number of employers referring employees to corrective programs over the last four years increased, rising 120 percent. The question is why? Are we working in a more stressful world, causing employees to “lose it” at work? Are managers just more afraid of legal consequences and therefore do little or nothing about people with problems? What has been your experience? How do we deal with the difficult employee?
