The cost of unresolved conflict

ACAS research found that the total cost of conflict to UK employers is £28.5 Billion

Research has found that conflict, on average, took between 20-40 hours of management time to resolve (CEDR Data)

The same research estimated the cost of conflict to be as much as the equivalent of 3-5% of a business' annual turnover

"Vanessa approached the issue really professionally and moved things forward. Even though one of the parties decided to leave, I feel that the mediation process brought things into focus for them that helped them reach that decision. I am pleased that they are at least leaving in the right way. I have already recommended Vanessa to a colleague in another branch."
