Employment mediation is one of the most efficient methods available for settling disputes in the workplace. Whether issues arise between co-workers, or employees and employers, mediation brings parties together to explore the various solutions and settle disputes affordably and effectively.
Disputes in the workplace have a way of affecting the entire organization. Even if only one or two people are involved, it is not long until everyone is touched. The sooner a dispute is settled, the sooner everyone is able to return to their most important goal: supporting the company and accomplishing business goals. Workplace disputes arise because of differences in style, background/gender, leadership, and personality. This can lead to complaints of harassment or bullying, discrimination, and wrongful termination, among others.
Mediation is efficient and uses communication to get to the heart of a matter. Often in the workplace, the dispute at hand is not as simple as it might seem. Mediation makes it possible to discuss root causes of a dispute and truly settle the underlying issue. Parties are encouraged to take a creative approach to settling a dispute and are able to keep control of the final outcome of the process. This makes it possible to preserve relationships and move forward with a clean slate.
