At Evolve Workplaces, we are able to provide highly experienced Facilitators, Accredited Mediators, Trainers and Workplace Investigators to workplaces within Adelaide and surrounding suburbs.
As part of our services, our practitioners are highly qualified in laying down the foundations towards building internal conflict management skills. To accomplish this, we coach you on workplace relationships, improved communication and strengthening internal workplace capacity in order to manage conflict and build resilience.
We are also able to support you through workplace mediations and investigations where staff have breached policies or external regulations or allegations of such have been made. Our innovative investigation processes are affordable, but we guarantee the highest quality and most robust investigations possible.
It’s no secret that managing conflict takes a large toll on an organisation’s finances and time. To quickly estimate the costs to your organisation, calculate how much work time you or your staff spend managing conflict (for example, 15% per person) then add any absenteeism rates to that. Calculate the cost of training new staff if you have high turnover rates, then add it to the overall amount. Finally, try to estimate the overall impact on your staff’s output and add that to the total. How does this look to you? If you’re like most organisations, managing conflict has quite a substantial impact that can clearly be seen when calculated. If there was another type of issue that was draining so much of your money and time, would you address it? Of course you would!
To make matters worse, if you allow conflicts to escalate without addressing them, you will likely incur leave costs, legal fees and settlement payouts. On top of that, you’ll be staking your reputation with customers/clients and new employees, tarnishing your brand name or culture and putting the health and safety of your current staff at risk.
An organisation who doesn’t manage conflict or only manages it when it comes to breaking point will end up literally paying for it. If you have processes in place to manage conflict via mediation or conflict training, or if you employ us to complete your workplace investigations, you’ll prevent those big costs long before they occur.
