Workplace mediation’s high success rate (over 90%) and low costs make it the most favored dispute resolution method for workplace conflicts such as bullying, harassment, discrimination and bias, sexual harassment, discipline problems, termination of employment, work performance, compensation and cultural diversity issues.
Many companies and organizations today use mediation to address workplace conflicts because it helps avoid damage to their public image and greatly reduces costs associated with litigation.
In addition to the financial investment for formal procedures and investigations, some cases can be so adversarial and stressful for all involved that people working together again is all but impossible. Mediation can help.
Restorative Justice is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by criminal behavior.
It is the constructive engagement of conflict in a deliberate and dignified manner that works to repair harm through the use of respectful, authentic and humane problem solving dialogue between and among parties.
