From our guest MODERN EMPLOYER Voice:
Deborah R. Gaber, Esq., Director of The Gaber Group
“As an employer, you know workplace conflict, on some level, at some time, will happen. You also know that you are ultimately in charge of things, so there’s no turning your back on it. How conflict issues are handled (or not handled) can have negative, possibly even devastating, effects on your business and your employees. What’s more, modern-day news outlets and social media broadcast publicly all the time about these internal company events. Beyond employee productivity, turnover, satisfaction and performance being at risk, your company’s brand is at stake too.”
