Workplace Mediation

What is the cost of this service?

Mediation is charged at £500 per day.

What is the aim of mediation?

The aim of workplace mediation is to help resolve disputes between two or more parties at any level within the organisation. As your mediator I will assist the parties to negotiate their own settlement using a structure, timetable and dynamics that ordinary negotiation lacks, whilst remaining impartial to the situation being discussed. The process is private and confidential and the details of the sessions will not be discussed within anyone else within the organisation.

How does it work?

I use various techniques to open or improve dialogue between disputants, aiming to help the parties reach an agreement for a way of working together going forward.

When can mediation be used in the workplace?

Mediation can be used to try and work through conflicts between any of the following:

  • employer - employee

  • employee - employee

  • team versus team

  • employer - management board/shareholders/stakeholders

  • employee/employer - third party supplier/consumer

Why does conflict occur?

Conflict can arise from a number of things, such as;

  • personality clashes

  • differrent expectations

  • breakdown of, or poor, communication

  • different values or maps of reality

  • personal aggression

  • external factors: re-organisation, new ways of working, new colleagues, high staff turnover etc.

What are the benefits of mediation?

Mediation is quick, confidential, creative and cost-effective. It also allows you to preserve or rebuild relationships. You do not need all of the information you might want at trial. In the workplace, mediation can increase efficiency and profitability by engaging and empowering employees to resolve their disputes.
