Workplace conflict can be costly. It can negatively affect morale, employee productivity, and if left unaddressed, can lead to wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment action. Don’t leave yourself vulnerable.
Research indicates that managers spend approximately 20% of their time working with personality clashes amongst employees. Conflict management can’t be left to chance. It is paramount to develop a conflict management program to deal constructively with conflict.
There are positive and effective ways to manage workplace conflict.

If the conflict is already past internal solutions, a neutral party can be part of a collaborative solution.
