Conflict Resolution


Workplace conflict is inevitable when employees of various backgrounds and different work styles are brought together for a shared business purpose.

Conflict can—and should—be managed and resolved.

HR Malta examines the causes and effects of workplace conflict and the reasons why employers should act to address conflict.

The first steps in handling workplace conflict belong, in most cases,to the employees who are at odds with one another.

The employer’s role—exercised by managers and HR professionals—is significant, however, and is grounded in the development of a workplace culturedesigned to prevent conflict among employees to the extent possible.

The basis for such a culture is strong employee relations, namely, fairness,trust and mutual respect at all levels.

HR Malta  offers suggestions to create such an organizational climate and includes methods to deal with employee grievances and conflicts.
