THE IMPORTANCE OF LABOUR POLICIES TO MANAGE CONFLICT WITHIN THE WORKPLACE IN ORDER TO IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY AND PERFORMANCE

At Platinum Business Solutions we understand the importance of conflict resolution in your workplace and why it should never be taken lightly. Managing conflict well can help find creative solutions to internal relationship issues, and can help to prevent environments that breed negativity, stress, demotivation and general employee unrest. Implementing effective Conflict Resolution requires a lot of time and commitment. One of the ways to engage your employees in the conflict resolution process is to help them understand why conflict resolution is beneficial in the first place. If employees can’t see the need to effectively resolve conflicts they will not engage in the process, and your efforts to develop these skills in your employees will be unsuccessful. 

Following are four benefits to conflict resolution that we consider essential to understanding why conflict resolution is important:

  • Builds relationships between employees and management
  • Ensures achievement of company goals
  • Enhances commitment between conflicting parties
  • Leads to greater insight between employees to consider various opinions in meaningful ways without creating conflict

By implementing labour relation policies that is geared towards these benefits can ensure that each employee feels they are valued, which will in turn ensure increased performance and productivity. In addition it will also ensure retention of skilled employees whereby companies can avoid high staff turnover as valued employees will not want to leave workplace that is relatively stress free.
