Managing Conduct in the Workplace

Home > HR Services > Managing Conduct in the Workplace

The importance of managing conduct issues

No business sets out to have issues with its employees, and few employees want to end up in a dispute with their employer. Yet for a variety of reasons, problems can occur that can negatively impact your business, your culture, and ultimately your success.

When an employee demonstrates inappropriate standards of behaviour, it’s important to deal with any issues quickly and effectively. A failure to adequately address the situation can result in a loss of team morale, a drop in productivity, or in some cases even an Employment Tribunal claim, which can cause both financial and reputational damage.

Whether it’s poor timekeeping, insubordination, inappropriate behaviour or even failed drug tests, our dedicated HR consultants will work with you to ensure that you undertake all the necessary steps, minimising disruption and any other associated risks to your business.

I found Loch HR an absolute blessing at a time when I really needed help. Deborah was excellent. Highly recommend their services.

Bruce has managed to ignite a real interest in learning about First Aid provision and the importance of the First Aid role in the workplace here at London Expedia and Egencia Manchester offices. Previously to Bruce’s individual approach to carrying out Site based courses, it was a struggle to truly engage delegates to enrol on a three-day course, which took time out of their busy schedules. However, with a few courses under his belt, he has received fantastic feedback from employees. We currently have forty employees all waiting to enrol for 2018 (in just one Site alone) which is truly a remarkable turnaround. Well done Bruce!

UK and Switzerland Hub Manager

We recently implemented a new HR software solution with Loch Associates Group, and have to say the level of service and training was excellent. The software itself has made many of the HR related challenges much easier to manage, and the assistance with the set-up, implementation and training has been first class. If you’re looking for an affordable HR software solution, I would certainly recommend Loch Associates Group very highly indeed.

I have no hesitation in recommending Loch Associates to any of my contacts should they ask my advice on employment issues.


The seamless service between the HR and legal teams in the Loch Associates Group has proved invaluable to us when we needed support with urgent, sensitive matters. The response was appropriate, professional and timely – we could not have asked for more. As a result of this excellent start, we have engaged HRA to provide us with ongoing support on employee matters safe in the knowledge that they will engage with their colleagues within the Group when those services are needed.
