At TB&A we understand conflict in the workplace can be extremely disruptive to your business, if left unaddressed it can have a lasting negative impact and create a toxic atmosphere.
Conflict can arise for many reasons in the workplace, such as;
- Personal differences where staff have problems working together
- Dignity at work (bullying, harassment, sexual harassment)
- Issues arising from a grievance or disciplinary procedure
- Unintended misguided comment or a misunderstanding between colleagues
- Potential industrial relations issues
- The challenge of change for staff in a competitive environment
Mediation can prevent escalation to formal proceedings such as the Workplace Relations Commission(WRC), Labour Court and Civil court. These formal procedures can prove costly and lengthy often resulting in negatively media/ social media publicity.
