Conflict in the workplace is inevitable. However, the manner in which it is dealt with is very important. As an employer, it is essential to be able to identify, understand, and effectively manage conflict in the workplace.
If improperly handled, workplace conflict can lead to decreased productivity, employee dissatisfaction, poor service to clients, absenteeism, increased work-related stress, increased employee turnover, and possibly litigation based on claims of harassment or hostile work environment.
It is always best to try to prevent conflict. However, if conflict does arise, it is important to work towards a resolution as soon as possible, and to avoid any barriers that could interfere with the problem-solving process.
