Independent Mediation
Workplace conflict, if left unattended can gather momentum, become more complex and unmanageable and descend into disputes. People can even develop polarised positions and focus on holding onto these positions rather than finding solutions.More and more organisations are recognising the value of integrating mediation into their workplace conflict resolution strategies. There are many business costs associated with a lack of intervention to address conflict in the workplace, including:

  • Lost productivity
  • Lowered worker morale; Damaged relationships;
  • Potential sabotage;
  • Increased absenteeism;
  • Increased sick leave;
  • Reduced retention;
  • Employee replacement costs;
  • Investigation costs; and
  • Litigation costs.

In mediation, a professional, impartial third party helps the people in conflict or dispute to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. The mediator does not impose a solution, s/he works with the parties to create their own solution. Mediation is a relatively cheap, quick and effective method of resolving disagreements or disputes, settling differences and preserving valuable relationships.

Mediation leads to successful resolutions in 80% of cases. Where the parties in mediation do not reach full agreement, parts of the disputes may be resolved, leaving fewer differences to be dealt with in arbitration or litigation.
