Employer Hiring & Recruitment Questions

How can I resolve a conflict between two employees?




















Meet with the antagonists together. Let each briefly summarize their point of view, without comment or interruption by the other party. This should be a short discussion so that all parties are clear about the disagreement and conflicting views. Intervene if either employee attacks the other employee. This is not acceptable. Let the antagonists know that you will not choose sides, that it is impossible for a construction executive external to the conflict to know the truth of the matter. You expect the individuals to resolve the conflicts proactively as adults. If they are unwilling to do so, you will be forced to take disciplinary action that can lead to dismissal for both parties. Finally, assure both parties that you have every faith in their ability to resolve their differences and get on with their successful contributions within your shared construction employer. Set a time to review progress.
