Customer Testimonials

  • Hi Tracie,

    Firstly, may I just say "thank you" for acting as Mediator during a recent work issue. Your understanding of the human psyche was apparent and your ability to remain impartial was essential to our journey.

    This week has been completely different here in terms of conversations undertaken thus far. I feel the session last week has made me stop and evaluate my responses in a more courteous manner, understanding also that my sense of humour is, at best warped, and sometimes misconstrued. I am trying to be kind instead of impatient to different styles.

    I thank you for your insight, guidance and support.

  • I would like to thank you for the mediation. I feel it has helped me address the issues by discussing them, and I now feel more confident to challenge when I have concerns. Thanks you very much.

Resolving workplace disputes

Hiring an experienced workplace mediator is extremely popular with HR professionals as it reduces stress, resolves conflict amicably, restores working relationships and takes substantially less time than conducting a formal grievance.

Mediation in a business environment can be extremely helpful in cases where there is a dispute but both employees are willing to resolve their differences without grievances or potential disciplinaries.

What is the workplace mediation process?

Workplace mediation is usually initiated by senior management or the HR department rather than the conflicted parties themselves.

There is no rigid formula to mediation and workplace mediators will adopt a flexible strategy to suit the specific situation.
In some cases all parties will sit around a table and discuss the issue in an open forum, using the mediator as an impartial chair.
In other cases, the mediator can work with the parties separately and pass correspondence back and forth between them until a resolution is reached.

Unlike the rigidity of a legal route - trained mediators will often use their experience to develop practical and innovative solutions to complex problems and have much more flexibility when considering remedies.
