Mediation of Workplace Issues
Mediation is a process in which an impartial person, the mediator, facilitates communication between parties to promote understanding, reconciliation, or settlement.
Mediation is a process for resolving disputes between individuals or organizations quickly, easily, simply, and in a manner which is less expensive than filing lawsuits.
The parties to a dispute negotiate with each other in a setting moderated and controlled by the mediator, who has no stake in the outcome.
The mediator assists the parties in:
- Identifying the problem or problems.
- Summarizing, restating, and prioritizing issues.
- Generating options.
- Evaluating options available and the possible consequences of each.
- Reaching agreement.
