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. Workplace mediation is ideally used to resolve 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. This creates open lines of communication and allows all parties to have their side heard without any fear of misinterpretation.
Workplace mediation not only reduces the number of workplace issues, but also has a positive effect on staff morale and turnover. Your employees will see that their employer is willing to deal with issues and also listen to their staff.
