74% of Employees have Conflict at Work

A survey by recruitment company FindEmployment in the UK shows 74 percent of employees have experienced conflict during their career, with 20 percent of them being “very serious”. Almost one-fifth (19 percent) accuse their boss of causing the disagreement. Almost a quarter (24 percent) noted that work related stress was the biggest contributing factor to the conflict they experienced, with 18% citing a continuously hostile working environment as the trigger for their battle.

So your workplace is not the only one! But how do you manage conflict when it arises and what have you done to minimize the risk of it turning serious? A process to follow will help, but mostly open and honest communication will avoid conflict and allow stress a way out before it blows up!
