Workplace Disputes

Making peace at work is increasingly important in today’s workplace.

According to the Washington Business Journal, “The typical manager spends 25-40% of his or her time dealing with workplace conflicts. That’s one to two days of every work week.”

Workplace conflicts can negatively affect an organization in a number of ways including directing energy and productivity away from work related tasks and the untimely turnover of valued employees.  Common causes of conflict within the work place today are identified as the following:

  • Failure to communicate
  • Personality clashes
  • Goal and value differences
  • Substandard performance
  • Differences over authority and accountability
  • Competition for limited resources
  • Non-compliance with rules and policies
