Managing conflict in the contemporary workplace.

About this Event

Join us on the 5th December at the Grand Hotel Gosforth Park where we will be joined by Pat Fairfax, Senior Advisor at acas who will be talking about Managing conflict in the contemporary workplace.

Conflict management is crucial if organisations are to have employee engagement and avoid the burden conflict can place on HR and employers. Pat will give an overview of causes and types of organisational conflict and what practices can help when facing conflict.

Pat has over 22 years’ experience in employment relations. She works with employers trade unions and employees to improve work place relations and prevent conflict. In addition to this, she has a Post Graduate Certificate in Workplace Mediation and deliver the Acas accredited Certificate in Workplace Mediation (CIWM).

Having worked as an Acas Conciliator and Conciliation team manager, it has given her an invaluable insight into the employment relations issues facing organisations.

There will be an opportunity to network prior to the speaker and refreshments will be provided.

Please fee free to prepare questions for Pat. We like our Knowledge sessions to be interactive for all attendees and therefore open discussion after the presentation is encouraged.

Dress code: We do not stipulate a dress code at our events but recommend attendees dress as though they were meeting clients. We recommend smart casual as a minimum.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO CHAMBER MEMBERS ONLY.

This Event is kindly supported by acas.
