How we help

Expert support to manage employee relations in the modern workplace

Employee disputes and conflicts can manifest themselves in different ways; from poor performance and attendance to personality clashes, bullying and harassment claims or discriminatory behaviour. Whatever the issue, workplace conflict can have noticeable negative repercussions for the rest of the organisation and result in disruptions to work, decreased productivity, absenteeism, increased turnover and termination.

Furthermore, a failure to address and deal with the problem can impact business efficiency and the wider organisation and could result in discrimination claims through tribunals if not handled correctly.

WorkNest offers expert advice, guidance and solutions to deal with employee relations issues, and our HR Consultants have the skills to support you in achieving the best outcomes.

Bespoke services to meet your budget

Speaking to a professional can dramatically reduce the amount of time spent dealing with staffing issues. It’s also a great way to reduce legal risk and improve outcomes. Our services are completely bespoke, and we can tailor our solutions to meet your budget.

We can provide day-to-do support and also work with you strategically to:

  • Diagnose potential organisational factors contributing to conflicts
  • Help you understand what can be done to address the range of employee relations issues
  • Assist in minimising the impact through swift resolution and developing effective consultation with employees
  • Develop manager skills in handling difficult conversations and meetings
