“Up to 30% of a typical manager’s time can be spent dealing with conflict.”

“Office workers spend more than two and a half hours per week trying to resolve conflict.”

“Poorly managed conflict costs £24 billion every year.”

 

What is Mediation?

In any workplace conflict is inevitable as it a natural part of communication between people. It is how we respond to and handle that conflict that makes it a positive or negative experience.  Poorly managed conflict not only costs an organisation financially but it wastes valuable time, hurts productivity, leads to sickness absence and impacts greatly on an organisations ability to achieve strategic goals.

Testimonials

“Thank you for the prompt consolidation of what was a very difficult but meaningful and positive day. I cannot thank your team enough; at the start of the day I was doubtful that agreement would be possible to be honest. I thought it quite likely that I might have to proceed to a grievance against my colleague. I am very glad to have aired my views and concerns and to feel there is a defined path forward. Thank you.”

“Thank you very much for this. I would like to take the opportunity to thank both mediators for their work yesterday. It was a very long and a very tough day and it was handled with great compassion and professionalism and even inspired me to want to be a mediator one day. It felt like such a gift to be heard and understood.”
