High Achievers and High Deceivers: How Your Strongest Asset Can Be Your Biggest Liability

2018 Employment Law & Legislative Conference
Learn how to address problematic behavior in such a way that encourages top employees to excel without putting the organization at risk.

According to a recent study from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, highly valued employees rank among the most likely culprits to trigger workplace harassment or discrimination complaints. As the value of a top performer rises, so does management's willingness to overlook questionable behavior. This presentation will describe the characteristics of these employees, the specific ways in which they can put an organization at risk and what HR leaders can do to curb problematic behavior. At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify high-value employees who may be putting the organization at legal risk.
  • Understand the legal ramifications of this unwanted behavior.
  • Effectively influence senior leaders in the organization to address problematic behavior.
  • Create and sustain a culture in which no employee is exempt from company policy.
