About Conflict Resolution Course

Conflicts are inevitable in any workplace. If left unchecked, they can quickly make work environments toxic and unproductive.

This conflict resolution course explains how to handle disagreements at work positively. It covers identifying conflict early, de-escalating heated situations and achieving resolutions that work for all parties.

Why Is Conflict Resolution Training Important?

Workplace conflict costs UK employers almost £28.5 billion every year, according to research conducted by Acas (the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service). Part of this cost comes from the nearly half a million employees who resign each year due to unresolved conflicts. Employers end up paying close to £15 billion in recruitment fees and lost productivity while new hires get up to speed.

Conflict still costs even when employees seek support from management or HR reps. The same Acas research found that a formal grievance costs the employer £1,141 on average, totalling £2 billion across the economy.

This conflict resolution course gives individuals the knowledge to prevent conflict and de-escalate situations before they incur any serious costs. Trainees will recognise early signs of conflict and know to address the underlying issues driving the disagreement. They will also understand how to disarm heated situations or aggressive workplace behaviour.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Employers are responsible for protecting their employees’ health and safety and must address workplace conflict as part of this.

Employers must:

  • Create a positive and inclusive work environment
  • Promote open communication and collaboration
  • Provide conflict resolution training materials and resources to staff
  • Ensure fair and impartial conflict resolution
