Human resources errors can have far-reaching consequences for the company. Litigation expenses can be quite high for businesses that don’t follow the law regarding employee rights and benefits or data confidentiality (Roth, 2018). Recruiting and training a new employee comes with significant expenditures, and if a mistake is made and the incorrect person selected for the job, the organisation is exposed to more risk. I have made my own share of mistakes which has had serious repercussions. For instance, an employee once approached me with a workplace grievance that one of the managers was employing favouritism especially when assigning duties and responsibilities. Since workload was too big at the moment I decided to handle the matter later when most of it would be done. I however ended up forgetting to handle the matter altogether. Little did I know many employees were affected by the matter and it came to light once again we had lost almost four of our most promising employees. The issue now too dire and I had to take responsibility of failing to acknowledge and act on a grievance soon enough. Nonetheless, I agreed to take responsibility and fix the situation. I conducted in depth evaluation of the matter before employing the company policy and procedures on how to deal with the line manager. I was also able to reach out and talk to the employees who left to come back promising a correction of the matter and I was able to bring back two who were yet to receive new offers. I conducted immediate interviews and training to replace the remaining two. After the incidence I ensured to remain keen on employee grievances.
