Managing conflict at work is an ongoing challenge for organisations and can be very damaging in the workplace environment. While conflict is a normal part of workplace, one of the key challenges is to take steps to minimise the impact as resolving issues when they do arise is not always a straightforward task.
Conflicts cannot simply be ignored; each situation is unique and requires a thorough understanding of the context of the conflict. What might be a small issue initially turns into a significant problem if not resolved at an early stage. Where conflicts are not addressed effectively, employees may suffer and the disruption caused will add significant cost to the organisation.
This webinar is designed to help organisations better understand issues that can cause conflicts and disputes, such as bullying and harassment, and advice on how best to manage and implement effective disciplinary procedures.
The webinar will also feature some examples and case from the Workplace Relations Commission to help reinforce the guidance and advice.
