From time to time, contentious issues will arise in the workplace. The catalyst may not be work related, but the impact on the involved party’s performance and conduct certainly will be.


Unresolved conflict could lead to:

 Lower productivity from the parties involved and their colleagues

 Lost management time dealing with the conflict and the impact on the working environment

Increased sickness absence to escape the daily pressures of the conflict

 Additional secondary conflicts as colleagues take sides

Increased errors

 Low morale

It could even result in:

 The loss of valuable skills and experience from the business

 Employment tribunal claims

 Reputational damage
