Conflict can occur in any workplace. No-one wants to deal with the consequences - costly tribunal claims, time consuming grievance procedures, poor morale and staff turnover problems. At the same time, the voluntary sector is obliged to solve these problems in a way that is both fair and inclusive
Workplace mediation offers just this, and is becoming an increasingly common support process for decision makers, HR managers and professionals when these problems threaten to become intractable. It can be used for many common personnel issues including:
- Colleague relationship breakdown
building a better workplace
mediation is a proven approach that can save you time, money and stress. You will also benefit from a more open and inclusive workplace. Your employees may report improved motivation and well-being, reducing staff turnover and making it easier for you to recruit like-minded colleagues.
mediation can “offer a solid basis for sustainable high-performance working.” (CIPD, 2008)
