Workplaces can often be a breeding ground for conflicts. Differences in personality can lead to clashes between employees. Quirky behaviours or personality traits can cause annoyance, tension and even anger. A variety of cultural backgrounds may lead to disagreements on what is considered acceptable behaviour in the workplace. Jealousy, infighting, and disputes with management can all lead to workplace conflict.
While some workplace conflicts may be minor and get resolved quite easily, others can prove trickier. Bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, disciplinary issues and grievances are all highly sensitive issues. Mismanagement, or failure to resolve the conflict efficiently, can have a negative impact on the entire workforce. Unfortunately, HR departments may not be able to devote the time the investigation needs without risking other HR areas falling behind. HR teams may also lack the necessary confidence to deal with certain matters. Allegations against senior members of the management team, for example, may lead to hesitation or worse – complete inaction.
