Identify possible areas of conflict between the human resources Functions A business can get a lot of conflict between the human resource functions, which are human resource planning, recruitment and selection, training and development and performance management. Safeway need to avoid as much conflict as possible, however this is not always easy, because they need to think of other functions for example; the recruitment and selection programme may be recruiting people that don't have the relevant skills. The training and developing team will not be happy in the way that they have recruited and selected these people because they will have to train them of things they should already know which is frustrating.

So they may think that training is not given effectively. So the employees that did not follow training have generated this conflict. If this were to occur at Safeway they should again need to use communication skills to avoid this problem, because this is a simple conflict that can be resolved by simple communication with the two human resources functions.

So for Safeway to avoid this conflict again need more communication between the two functions so each other are aware of what is being done.
