Workplace Mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution which begins with the assumption that both parties are ready to try and resolve their issues. It gives them an opportunity to resolve their conflict in an informal manner. Involving a neutral third party (mediator) they will take part in private and joint meetings in order to find a mutually acceptable and appropriate resolution.

As Mediators, we will create an environment which encourages dialogue between the parties to the dispute and allows each party to have their say and be heard. The final outcome of mediation is agreed by the parties, not the mediator.

Disputes in the workplace can bring an atmosphere of hostile relationships, ongoing and escalating conflict, breakdown in communications, lowered productivity and the loss of effective employees.
