Conflict at work? How mediation can help

October 26, 2023

Its almost impossible to avoid conflict at work. Informal complaints and niggles left unresolved can quickly evolve into informal disputes, unhealthy undercurrents and time consuming clashes and formal grievances.

Unresolved conflict can in turn lead to breakdowns in trust, unhappy inefficient staff and an increased risk of employees bringing expensive employment law compensation claims.
