Proactive Labor Relations in a Non-Unionized Environment

January 22 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

₱5000 – ₱7000

Program Overview

One of the major challenges in human resources management is having positive employer-employee relations and maintaining industrial peace. This is crucial as the productivity and competitiveness of an enterprise is greatly affected by the absence or lack of it. When the relationship is strained, polarization develops thus hindering performance of what could be an effective unified team.

While the constitution and the labor code provide for workers’ organization, it does not prohibit enterprises from maintaining its non-union status. Hence, it is imperative that employers learn how to positively and proactively manage their employees. This program will enable all management personnel and functional managers to deal with employees fairly-as-human beings without the intervention of third parties.
