In your next rotation, you have been assigned to the firm’s Employee Relations practice. This practice provides research and advisory services, including benefit and wage benchmarking. One of the sub-specialties is tracking union organization efforts, public sentiment and legislation and—in a departure from the usual practice—advising both unions and management on how to develop employee value propositions and collaborative management practices.
Your task is to develop a 1 to 2-page draft position statement for the firm’s Employee Relations principal, distilling what you’ve learned in this module. Your position statement must reflect current realities, including additional research as needed.
