One of our dispute resolution experts will undertake a speedy and thorough evaluation of the current situation and provide a detailed report outlining the options available. We always ensure that we work within the time limits laid within your own policies and the Employment Act 2008. Most neutral evaluations take only three days to complete including interviews and report preparation.
We do not seek to attribute any blame or make a determination. We are simply assessing the suitability of the case for mediation and/or any other course of action. During the evaluation, we collect a wide range of information about the parties, your organisation, the systems, cultures and other factors that may have contributed to the conflict. The evaluation will result in a number of clear recommendations being made available through the final report.

Mediation provides all parties with the opportunity to reach a positive, appropriate and sustainable resolution to the conflict The benefits of mediation in teams can be far reaching and some times surprising.
