What is Mediation?

Mediation is an essential resource for organisations. It helps improve employee relationships, increase productivity, reduce sickness absence and reduces the time and costs of formal grievances and disciplinary cases.

Mediation looks at the issues before they become disputes and gives the parties the chance to have their say in a safe environment.

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.”
