Yesterday I attended an event centered around the topic of social media and its implications for employee relations issues in the workplace. Many businesses have already put social media policies in place to provide instruction to employees and managers about workplace issues and social media. Even the best social media policy, however, can only do so much to address areas that can cause potential employee relations issues both in and out of the immediate workplace.

I was in one of my favorite grocery stores the other day to pick up a few items. While I was there, I noticed they were making massive changes to their items in inventory. I knew they were getting ready to relocate to another store location in a few months, and that it was a brand new facility.
One of the driving factors for the decision to move was a competitive one. Within in the last few months, several new grocery stores had entered the market with splashy advertising touting their presence. These competitors were diverse in their offerings: one offered lower prices and “bag your own groceries”. Another was a national chain that was definitely more upscale.
