Why Do Dental Organizations Need MBT Consulting?
Of all the human resource related issues that can befall your company, lawsuits filed for not being in compliance with a law is typically the most expensive and the most damaging to your company/practice(s). Even if you “settle out of court,” you still may have:
- Attorney fees
- HR consultant fees to gather information and documents
- Your time, which is counterproductive for the practice
- Your staff’s time
- Stress and disruption to the practice
- Loss of staff and patients because of the distraction
- Loss of staff and patients if the outcome of the EEOC suit is found against you
Of course, there is an answer: prevention. Mary is extremely skilled at helping organizations prevent employee relations issues that have potential to escalate into major complaints. MBT Consulting can provide prevention tools such as:
- Training and development – From Harassment & Diversity training to succession planning and personal development which makes employees feel valued
