The endless benefits of Workplace Mediation include an opportunity to restore employee morale and empowered teamwork, achieve optimal efficiency performance, productivity and profits, as well as retention of valuable employees. Mediation is recognized as a crucial and cost-effective tool towards resolving some of the most common and difficult conflicts occurring in the workplace, including:
Through the confidential mediation process, individuals in conflict are provided with the opportunity to make better choices in the face of conflict and interpersonal differences, leading to more informed, satisfying and lasting resolutions. Not only can the actual disagreement be resolved, but mediation offers the opportunity for the participants to overcome misunderstandings and misperceptions and to restore trust and respect in their working relationship. At the same time, the skills applied, developed and learned in mediation can be used by participants to help resolve future disputes as well, keeping the tools off the shelf!
Workplace Mediation offers important benefits to employers and employees alike. It provides fast, creative, mutually satisfactory resolutions. When a dispute is mediated shortly after it arises, the chances of optimal resolution are much greater: the parties’ differences have not had a chance to fester, the situation is generally more fluid, and the parties have more resolution options available to them. Mediated resolutions work better and last longer than authoritatively imposed resolutions because everyone involved has a stake and buys into them. Moreover, mediation fosters mutual respect through improved communication, and can mend and preserve frayed working relationships even when the parties are extremely hurt and angry.
The primary goal of workplace mediation is to leave the parties better able to work together. Traditional “settlement conferences,” in which the mediator separates the parties and shuttles back and forth between them, often will not be adequate to this task; the parties will need to work through their differences together.
