Keep employees happy in the workplace to avoid lawsuits


According to a 2011 Office Team survey, 46 percent of employees across the United States said they have worked for an unreasonable boss, while 59 percent of those employees remained at the job, whether they confronted the issue or not.

"Many employees are predisposed to mistrust managers, often because of bad experiences with bosses at other jobs,” said Patrick DiDomenico, editorial director at Business Management Daily. “It’s important to nip negativity in the bud since negativity breeds more negativity and anger.”

Often times, negativity in the workplace can lead to problems with management, and this bad feeling can mean lawsuits should circumstances worsen. This is one reason businesses should stay protected with a type of business insurance that covers lawsuits of this nature.

Some ways to keep employees happy in the workplace include remaining consistent with all employees, involving employees in the decision-making process and only criticizing employees in private.  

Another way to make sure employees are feeling good in the workplace is to create a social intranet for an office. According to Business 2 Community, a social intranet lets employees know that managers trust their employees, and lets them know that their opinions matter.
