About The TCM Group

TCM are proud to help organisations resolve some of their toughest challenges by helping to build strong teams and manage organisational change.


Workplace Mediation

Workplace mediation has proven to reduce employee grievances by over 50%, our customers have reported savings in excess of £180,000 a month. Workplace mediation services resolve complex and challenging disputes swiftly, effectively and with as little disruption as possible.

Over 90% of disputes resolved in just one day

Investigation Services

Our independent workplace investigation service is ideal for responding to a specific allegation. Areas covered by our investigations service include misconduct, discrimination, performance, bullying, harassment, grievances, whistleblowing, theft, fraud, bribery and complaints.

Over 1,480 workplace investigations carried out

Management Training

Many leaders and managers are promoted based on their technical skills rather than their ability to manage people. As a result, valuable time and money is wasted. Based on proven teaching and learning methods, TCM helps to develop first class leaders.

91% of business leaders feel they would benefit this training

TCM Insights

stroke association

We’ll donate a minimum of £50 to the Stroke Association with your help

The TCM Group is delighted to announce the launch of the ‘clear your desk of conflict’ campaign, for the eighth year running. Since 2008, every year we save our clients approximately £600,000 during quarter three, with a campaign goal to get all your internal disputes resolved before the New Year.

This year TCM have decided to donate £50 to the Stroke Association for every organisation that implements any conflict resolution service through TCM before 2017. We will also donate £1 to every single person that shares a picture of their desk, clear or cluttered, on Twitter using #TCMResolution and @thetcmgroup.

David Liddle, TCM's CEO saw the immediate damage a stroke can cause, when his Father suffered a stroke around 10 years ago. This is not a one off, another member of the resolution team’s father also had a stroke very recently. It is something that is close to our hearts.

We have worked with an impressive client list over the years including: The Metropolitan Police, BT, Lloyds Banking Group, Marks & Spencer, HSBC, Arcadia, DWP and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

This campaign is all about starting the new year with a ‘clean slate’. Christmas and the New Year will be here before you know it and most people are beginning to feel excited about indulging and relaxing with their loved ones over the Christmas break. Resolving any disputes at work before the break can provide an extra boost when returning – peace at work is not a myth.

2017 is going to be a year of significant change and potential opportunity. Article 50 will be triggered, President Trump will take up office and the UK’s economic projections are at best uncertain. Why enter into the new year with the added stress of an unresolved dispute, grievance or complaint sat on your desk?

Resolve your office disputes now and you and your colleagues can focus on your new year’s resolutions rather than dispute resolution. TCM are proud to resolve over 93% of cases and have worked on some of the most challenging workplace disputes imaginable.

Dispute resolution is almost always more effective when dealt with at an early stage. Do not wait until the new year. Compare the cost of TCM’s dispute resolution to the tens of thousands you might end up spending on employment tribunal’s in the new year, and you can see how it makes sound financial sense.

Get involved!

If you would like to get involved in this campaign, please do let us know. Call 0800 294 97 98 or email info@thetcmgroup.com. We have set a target of £500 and would appreciate any help in reaching this, either through the implementation of any TCM service (£50 donation) or by Tweeting @tcmgroup,using #TCMResolution and include a photo of your desk (£1 donation).

'’I would recommend The TCM Group’s services as being highly beneficial for your workplace. They helped all of us at the Isle of Man Department of Health embrace mediation with absolute enthusiasm. They are very professional, bring a wide range of experience and knowledge and made us all feel very supported’’

Mike Emmott, Adviser, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

“The TCM Group has made a significant contribution to furthering the cause of workplace mediation in both public and private sectors. David was ahead of the field in recognising the need for the mediation community to adopt a more professional framework, and doing something about it. His commitment to providing mediation and training in-house mediators is allied with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. He is always looking to drive the agenda forward and is an active member of the Civil Mediation Council Workplace Mediation Committee.”
