A typical manager spends the equivalent of 20% (one day of each week) dealing with workplace conflict. Managing workplace conflict offers a pragmatic way of giving that day back to the managers within your organisation. Imagine how much more effective they could be with an extra day focussed on achieving organisation objectives. It wouldn’t take long for the impact of the better use of their time to become evident through increased productivity, heightened team morale and ultimately results.

Let Globis Mediation Group assist you with managing the conflict within your organisation and see what a difference that saved day can make to your team.

Need a workplace Mediator?

Are there conflict issues between any of your employees?

Are any of your teams not working effectively due to a relationship breakdown?

Workplace Mediation could be the solution that you are looking for.
 

 

Workplace mediation is an effective tool for resolving both newly arisen and ongoing disputes between individuals, and teams. By appointing Globis to mediate a dispute within your organisation, you are choosing a professional, experienced and neutral provider. We are regularly the first choice for lawyers and non lawyers seeking to appoint a mediator. Our national panel of mediators includes HR professionals, solicitors, barristers, QCs, line managers and trade union representatives. Instructions are invited from employers and employees.  

 Globis follows seven steps to manage the workplace mediation process:

  • Gain the agreement of parties to mediate

  • Contact Globis on 0330 100 0809 or click here to contact us to discuss the nature of the dispute. We will explain the mediation process, discuss potential mediation dates and appoint a mediator

  • You inform the parties that Globis will be making contact with them (or their representatives)

  • The Globis mediator will have pre-mediation discussions with each party (or party representatives), either face to face or over the telephone

  • The mediation takes place

  • A settlement agreement is drafted and signed (85-90% of mediations undertaken by Globis were resolved last year)

  • In cases where there is an ongoing employment relationship with the parties, Globis will follow up with the parties 1-3 months after the mediation has taken place (optional)

Workplace mediation offers a fast, cost effective resolution to issues that may have been simmering for weeks, months or even years. The majority of workplace mediations settle within just one day.

I would like to thank you so much for your brilliance in resolving the dispute. Not only did you manage to resolve [our dispute], I believe you also managed to reinvigorate the Board into thinking about its future.
