Helping people in workplace conflict move forward

Disagreements are normal and conflict happens. When it does, Fair Way is here to help resolve conflict and restore relationships.

  • That’s what we do. It’s even in our name – ‘kia tau’ means ‘to settle, to resolve, to calm’.

    We all spend a good portion of our lives at work, so workplace conflict can threaten how we live our lives, and it can threaten our livelihoods. Workplace conflict is usually involved with challenging dynamics between co-workers, who feel upset about something the other has or hasn’t done. This can cause issues at work and even outside of work.

    Like any dispute, workplace conflict is best dealt with early and proactively. If so, conflict can even result in improved wellbeing, engagement and productivity. 

    It’s in everyone’s interests to deal with workplace conflict as soon as possible so it doesn’t escalate into a dispute. At Fair Way, we can help.

  • Over 35% of employees in small organisations and 25% in larger ones (50+ staff) identified relationships at work as a main cause of their work-related stress and anxiety.
