  • do we know how to create the right culture?
  • are we developing and retaining our talented people?
  • do we have a workforce plan?

Workplace Mediation


Even in the best workplaces, disputes and conflict can occur between employees. Whether as a result of a personality clash, poor communication or performance issues, conflict can lead to absence, stress, loss of productivity, formal grievances and other management issues. Early mediation from an independent person can reduce the risks associated with conflict. Both parties must be willing to take part in the process but if they are we can help them work on re-establishing a professional working relationship.
