“MEDIATION WORKS! – Unresolved conflict costs a lot more than just money. Our workplace mediation services resolve complex and challenging disputes swiftly, effectively and with as little disruption as possible. Our team of expert and experienced workplace mediators work with all parties in a dispute to establish their underlying needs and interests, encourage dialogue and ultimately, facilitate a mutually acceptable resolution.”
An approach that works 93% of the time
Every year, workplace conflict costs UK businesses over £28 billion. Too often, organisations choose formal litigation as a first resort. We’re proud to hold a 93% success rate in resolving disputes since we started mediating in 2001. Traditional grievance procedures encourage and facilitate bad behaviour, failing to address root issues, and leaving disaster in their wake.
But conflict doesn’t have to be like this. It can be a creative and constructive conversation if we just know how. That’s where mediation comes in: a restorative one-day process, but also a mindset, a framework, and a set of skills. It requires involved parties to come to a mutual agreement, observed and guided by an objective and confidential mediator.
