Workplace mediation is an informal and impartial negotiation process to resolve differences between conflicting parties.
Conflict does not necessarily have to mean a serious incident; different levels of conflict can occur in the workplace on a daily basis. Mediation is ideally used to resolve workplace issues at the earliest possible opportunity, before it can reach the level of a formal grievance or employment law tribunal – potentially saving your business a lot of time and money.
ELAS’s professionally qualified mediators enable the differing parties to talk through and resolve any areas of conflict, creating open lines of communication and allowing all parties to have their side heard without any fear of misinterpretation.
Mediation not only reduces the number of workplace issues, but it can also have a positive effect on staff morale and turnover. Your employees will see and believe that their employer is willing to deal with issues as they arise and listen to their staff.
