SUBJECT: Conflict resolution program offered at Memorial University

DATE: June 17

             The effects of conflict in the workplace can be widespread and costly. These effects can include decreased productivity, increased employee stress, high turnover rates and absenteeism. In many cases these conflicts can require the application of specific skills, perspective and methodology to bring about lasting change.
