What is HR Mediation?
HR Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that enables the parties to address conflict and design a path forward that allows them to move through challenging inter-personal dynamics at work. HR mediation can take place in one session or in multiple sessions. In HR mediation, parties may all meet with the mediator together, or have time alone with the mediator, or use a combination of both. The process works especially well in situations where the parties have an on-going relationship and would like to find a positive solution as well as define a process for resolving future conflicts.
What do HR Mediators Do?
An HR Mediator is a neutral who assists parties to clarify issues, develop options and work toward a mutually agreed upon plan. HR Mediators do not act as decision makers, judges or fact finders. Instead, HR Mediators assist those involved in exploring and developing their own conflict resolution plans.
