Employment law matters and company culture

From employment contracts, to workplace policies, to disputes with employees, all kinds of legal matters related to its workforce can come up for a small business. When such matters arise, small businesses here in Louisiana may want guidance from a skilled attorney on what approach to take in addressing them.

Why does how employment-related legal issues are handled by a business matter? Well, such issues can have implications for a lot of fundamental things within a business. Among the things that could be affected is the business’ overall company culture.

Company culture is something that businesses have been paying more and more attention to. Among the things such culture could have the potential to affect within a business are: productivity, efficiency, execution, creativity, turnover and even the overall bottom line.

How important small business owners are coming to view company culture as can be seen in a recent small business survey. The survey was done by The Alternative Board. Around 93 percent of the business owners who were polled in the survey indicated that they felt creativity and productivity were increased by the promotion of company culture.

What would you recommend for building a strong culture within a small business? What do you see as the biggest roadblocks to keeping company culture strong?

So, among the things business owners may have concerns about and want to give careful thought to when employment law issues come up is how their handling of these issues could impact the culture at their business.
