Mediation Mediation referrals

For Managers/Team Leaders/HR

Considering referring a case to mediation?

Mediation is being used successfully within the University amongst a very diverse range of employees, at all levels.  Over 90% of cases that go to mediation reach an agreement which includes both parties agreeing a way of working together in the future that is acceptable to them both.  The Mediation Service have successfully dealt with complicated entrenched conflicts that have been going on for months/years which had seemed impossible to resolve.

Cases often involve perceptions of bullying and harrassment, differences in/dislike of line-management style, aspects of performance management, poor communication practices, conflict and confrontation, no communication and isolation and a complete breakdown in a working relationship.
