Workplace Mediation that Provides a Way Forward

At Great Workplaces HR Consulting practice our HR focused organizational development services understand that business problems are people problems. Solving people problems requires change at the individual level as well as in the overall approach an organization takes in how it runs. Over the years we have developed a system to facilitate organizational transformation. We work with you to find the strengths and weaknesses in your existing organizational dynamic. We then develop a plan to help the members of your team, division, and company work to maximize their individual and collective strengths while growing past the weak points.

When do You Need Workplace Meditation?

When you should call for an external mediator:

  • Two individuals who provide value to the organization, and must work together.
  • Avoid each other or demonstrate passive-aggressive behaviors.
  • Have lost motivation, creativity, and ability to perform and meet goals.
  • You cannot resolve ongoing differences.

If you want your teams and organization achieve its most productive level, it must be healthy. You need an energetic environment that has a minimum of chaos, conflict, and confusion. Whether you run a for-profit business or a nonprofit organization, your organization must be able to grow and adapt to changing conditions based on trust and respect.

What is Great Workplaces Workplace Mediation Process?

If you feel there is a workplace-related conflict that you would like to discuss with a co-worker or supervisor, you may request mediation by contacting Karen at (804) 239-8804 who acts confidentially in this role. She will discuss your issues with you and decide whether your case might be appropriate for mediation. If so, she will contact the other party to discuss mediation as an option for resolving the problem.

If the case is appropriate for mediation and both parties agree to mediate, a mutually convenient time and location is chosen.

During the mediation, parties are each given an uninterrupted opportunity to discuss their issues. With guidance from mediators, the parties eventually communicate directly with each other and begin to develop options for resolution.
