Australian Workers at WAR

Sydney, 30 April 2012.

Almost 60% of Australian Workers have left their job due to conflict in the workplace according to a social media survey conducted by local and international award winning corporate training company – Happening People (

Many organisations are blind to the issue of workplace conflict and the impact it is having on their organisation.  Some believe their organisation and the people in it are adept at managing conflict, others ignore it and some even encourage it. More over the failure of organisations to address conflict effectively is having a huge impact on our workplaces and the social, economic and emotional toll is untold.

Managing Director of Happening People, Samuel Day said recently “This is having a major impact on organisations with increases in recruitment costs, lost team productivity, loss of talent and organisational knowledge not to mention the impact on the individual, both financial and emotional.  It can hit everyone’s bottom line”.

Research conducted by Recruitment and Consulting Services Association for Australia and New Zealand  (RCSA) revealed average staff turnover costs are 150% of the employee’s salary an epic cost for even the most ‘cashed up’ organisations.

Managing Director of Happening People, Samuel Day said recently “When conflict is not addressed appropriately within an organisation the total cost to the business far exceeds the financial costs. Morale and productivity levels are impacted and an organisations corporate brand can be severely damaged.’

Taking steps to deal with conflict is discussed in Happening People’s workplace blog, Top 5 on Managing Yourself When Conflict Arises  ( )
