When issues happen between coworkers, it used to seem that people were able to handle the problems themselves. Now more people are bringing their issues to Human Resources, and prefer to have an outside source settle the argument. Is this necessary? Are we complaining to HR too much?

Should employees rely on 3rd parties to arbitrate problems in the office, or should employees be able to work through issues themselves.
