The importance of resolving Workplace Disputes Fast

The HR Department may be the last to know about workplace unrest, and disputes may be entrenched before notification.  Early intervention is vital to successful resolution.

Signs such as: inadequately explained absenteeism, tension between colleagues, and isolation of one worker by the majority of the staff should alert managers to possible problems needing expert intervention.

Brisbane Mediations can help resolve your workplace issues fast no matter what your role – employer, manager or staff member.  Businesses, organisations and individuals can save money and save face through Mediation or Conflict Coaching between key personnel in conflict.

We meet parties individually and usually liaise with HR or management to get a better understanding of the different viewpoints of the dispute – and possible means of resolution.

If appropriate to mediate, then we proceed with mediation in a sensitive and focused manner, seeking solutions to move forward.

We get it.   It’s really hard to talk with a person you find difficult and so we try to make the process straightforward and respectful for all concerned.
