Overview

Staff management responsibilities often include providing solutions to common issues that arise in the workplace. From dropped shifts to tiime clocking supervision, schedule requests to break time regulations, business managers often find themselves micro managing on simple issues that interrupt their workflow and leave a lasting impression on their staff as to how minor conflicts are addressed.

According to a report conducted by Gallup in 2014, one of the three biggest issues that make employees feel disconnected from and uninterested in their job is their manager’s inability to respond swiftly to staff needs. Likewise, 95% of managers feel that they don’t have a system in place that’s accurate or conducive for collecting staff data – like schedules, payroll, and requests – and managing it accordingly.

This leaves both business managers and their employees with a rather troubling and unnecessary gap between conflict awareness and conflict resolution. To eliminate that gap and begin facilitating solutions to these issues, managers need to assess each conflict and apply a relevant fix that will resolve these minor reliability issues without requiring extensive managerial involvement.

In this whitepaper, we’ll address six common employee reliability conflicts that business managers deal with on a regular basis and how managers can evolve their current processes in order to eliminate those issues in the future.
