Workplace Conflict Resolution-Actions to Avoid

Workplace conflict is very common and it happens in all corners of the organization. There are very few offices where all the employees get along. Hence, conflict resolution is a necessary component of the workplace, and those in a leadership position must be skilled in conflict resolution techniques. When conflicts go unaddressed, they can have a negative impact on productivity and teamwork. It is important to address such issues in order to maintain a cordial environment at work. Clashes can be avoided if steps are taken early in a discussion to diffuse anger and facilitate communication, and it can be resolved by applying a series of thoughtfully applied steps.

Post Budget Reactions from Ashish Jain, Director – Finance, Xavient Information Systems

“Once again, no attention has been given to SEZ and IT sector units which are contributing a lot to the economic development of the country. MAT was imposed on SEZ units few years back which discouraged service sector exporters and particularly IT sector exporters to set up business inside SEZs and since then, every year, there has been expectations that it would be rolled back. In general, there is nothing for medium sized corporates and individuals in this budget and rather cost of services have been increased in form of increased service tax which is a major disappointment for all.” said Ashish Jain, Director - Finance, Xavient Information Systems."

Budget Expectations from Mr. Arshad Majeed, Executive Vice President (Global Delivery), Xavient Information Systems

“All eyes are on the Budget 2016-17 this February. One of the very obvious expectation that is taking the rounds is initiated by Prime Minister’s idea of creating more jobs and we hear that the benefits to the employers would be in the form of tax exemption. Some reduction in corporate tax this year would be a welcome step by the industry. A detailed road map and greater funds allocation is anticipated for the Smart City Initiative. The hopes ride high for this year’s budget and we believe the focus to be on digital literacy, improved connectivity and access to technology. The Digital India initiative is something to look forward to and budget support in this regard is highly expected for encouraging more startups. And since we operate in the NSEZ, we definitely await the removal of MAT from the SEZ’s, that has been long due.”
