Press Release: ‘Mediation and Organisation Diagnosis in the NHS’ research shortlisted for the Association of Business Psychologists’ Awards

The ground-breaking research ‘Mediation and Organisation Diagnosis in the NHS’ has been shortlisted in the 2017 Association of Business Psychologists’ Workforce Experience Awards. The research, carried out by Business Psychologist and Globis Mediation Group CEO Clive Lewis OBE DL, explored whether the principles of medical diagnosis are also applicable to identifying organisational problems in the NHS.

The research uncovered some important findings about conflict in the NHS such as:

  • The cost of conflict in the NHS is over £0.5bn.
  • On average, it took 19 months and 2 weeks before a dispute in the NHS went to mediation.
  • Sickness and absence levels were 2.6% higher in groups where there was conflict.
  • An apology was all that was required to stop tension in many cases.

Mediation is a very useful tool for organisation diagnosis in the NHS. Mr Lewis has already presented his findings to many Trust CEOs and NHS membership organisations, highlighting the importance of investment in conflict resolution.

The ABP’s Workforce Experience Awards are a unique platform for celebrating excellence in the application of Psychology in Business. ‘Mediation and Organisation Diagnosis in the NHS’ is shortlisted in the Excellence in Wellbeing, Health & Inclusiveness category.

In addition to the Awards, the ABP Conference also gives over 100 HR, OD, Learning, Resourcing and business psychology practitioners a platform to share their expertise, and Mr Lewis will be presenting his research on ‘Mediation and Organisation Diagnosis in the NHS’ to delegates.

The ABP Conference and Awards Presentation will be held in London during October 2017.
