Workplace Mediation

Workplace Mediation is an opportunity to deal with a range of disputes that happen in the workplace, in a respectful and positive way.

This happens through a supported conversation with a skilled mediator. We explore the background to disputes, impacts on parties and their desired outcomes. Individuals can also be supported through conflict coaching and counselling. Agreements in mediation can be informal or be made into a formalised written document.

Good outcomes in mediation result in increased harmony, as well as improved productivity and company profits.
