Workplace Mediation

#What is Workplace Mediation?

Workplace 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.  Workplace mediation can take place in one session or in multiple sessions.  In Workplace 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 Workplace Mediators Do?

An HR Mediator is a neutral who assists parties to clarify issues, develop options and work toward a mutually agreed upon plan.  Workplace Mediators do not act as decision makers, judges or fact finders.  Instead, Workplace Mediators assist those involved in exploring and developing their own conflict resolution plans.
