Workplace Mediators are used to help resolve a range of disputes at work. These include:
- Disagreements or difficult relationships between work colleagues
- Multiparty disputes within teams
- Disputes between different levels of management
- Employer/ employee disputes
Mediation can be a more constructive and creative way to help resolve workplace disputes. It can help defuse difficult situations, which if left unchecked, can lead to absenteeism through illness and stress, disruption in the work place, loss of valuable staff and even legal action.
Workplace mediators are independent third parties that can help sort out misunderstanding and focus on the practical steps needed to move things forward. Mediation sessions are often conducted over one or two meetings making mediation a swift, simple and cost effective solution to a range of workplace problems.
