The preferences of the employees can also be influenced by their perceptions about workplace friendship. In this study, it was aimed to find out the predictive levels of employees' workplace perceptions for their preferences about the conflict management styles. The research was designed as a descriptive survey model. The scales of "workplace friendship" and "Rahim Organizational Conflict Management" were utilized as data collection tools. The correlations among and predictive levels of sub-dimensions of workplace friendship scale for the conflict management styles were analyzed by means of multiple regression analysis. At the end of the analyses, it was found out that the variable of friendship prevalence is a meaningful predictor of conflict management style of integrating, friendship opportunity is a meaningful predictor of compromising style, and friendship prevalence and friendship opportunity variables together are the meaningful predictors of avoiding style.
