A healthy business environment often thrives on competitiveness, different working styles, lively debates, diverse personalities and backgrounds. However, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s when we get involved.
Where’s the line
When trust or rules are broken, moral codes are breached or communication shuts down, conflict can quickly escalate.
This is the line. When employees become affected on a personal and emotional level, workplace mediation is essential. As this type of conflict rarely goes away on its own.
Conflict is contagious
In fact, as with any incident in a community, a problem can quickly escalate as more people become involved. In a work environment, it’ll come as no surprise, that both productivity and performance suffer.
Time to take action
Ideally, you’ll bring us in as independent mediators before things escalate. However, often the scale of the problem is unforeseeable. Fortunately, we’re prepared for this at every level.
What happens next
We assist as a totally neutral party to help resolve workplace disputes between employees and managers or business owners. Not just to find compromises and solutions but to rebuild working relationships.
A last chance
Workplace mediation is often an olive branch to resolve disputes without filing a formal complaint or lodging a Fair Works Commission or Industrial Tribunal claim. Both cost emotionally and financially and are best avoided.
