I work in an IT firm . We have an office in banglore & kochi. The bangalore staff are onsite engineers & kochi staff are development engineers.There always takes place clashes between both over phone/mail etc. This is very time consuming & is creating an adverse working atmosphere. I am now thinking about bringing all the staff together & have an open discussion regarding the issue. I want they thmselves to reach a decision & proceed. Pls let me know if this would be helpful. Or else, plsssss give me some tips on the same like any social activities/ team buiding excercises to be organised. Anyway, I have to close this problem asap. PLLLLSSSSSS REPLYYYYY

Open talks could help in people getting together, But in your case, I really doubt if this would work, for these reasons, one being the two offices you have are in two places, the other is there might be no single point of contact for these people. I feel the open discussion should be given top priority, but also location wise counselling, it might seem to be an odd option, but this works better than any of them, if you are willing to give the employees a qualitative target strategy. I have tried this and it has worked for me. All the best and hope you would let us know the outcome

Hi Jm
I guess you can arrange a training session,team building exercises where staff from both the locations can participate.On a lighter note you can take your entire staff for a picnic.
Your own decision of having an open talk with all the staff is also highly appreciable!
Thanks and Regards

Dear JM,
As common as these problems are in different companies, it is not impossible to solve them. For this, you need to analyse in detail the root cause of the problems/clashes. Once you have correctly diagnosed the real cause, prescribing the right medicine is not difficult.
Although training is an option for taking care of inter departmental issues, sometimes it is not a training related issue at all. A lot of times (and I can say this from experience) it is also about processes.
Get in touch with me if you need any further assistance on how to go about it.

Like Monoswi, I feel that before you have an open discussion, try and get at the root of the problem, probably by sitting with one or two of the most influential engineers in each location, and gently probing them on why the situation has deteriorated to the present level.
There may be genuine situational issues, or misinterpretations, or even personal differences amongst key leaders in both locations. Once you have a good idea of the type of problems that have occurred, it will give you the proper background for an open discussion thereafter.
See how this works.
