In the workplace, disputes and conflict may require additional support to help parties resolve and limit any negative impact or interruption to their relationship, team and business.

Mediation is facilitated by a neutral third-party (mediator) who meets with both parties who would like to discuss and address the issue/s at hand and reach an agreeable outcome. The mediator’s role is to encourage and facilitate discussion, rather than provide advice or represent either party. A high percentage of disputes are resolved through mediation, making it an attractive option to many individuals and organisations, regardless of their location, industry or role in the workplace. Our mediations are conducted using a structured framework, in a private, informal, neutral setting.

What are the benefits of mediation?

• Mediation is private and confidential: both parties agree to maintaining confidentiality prior to commencing mediation.
• It enables both parties to voice their concerns.
• You do not need legal representation to participate in mediation.
It is conducted in a neutral, professional, private setting, which can be arranged by the mediator in a location that's convenient to both parties.

Is mediation suitable for a dispute?

If both parties are open to the mediation process as a way of resolving their dispute, mediation is likely to be a suitable option. 

What happens after mediation?

Sometimes you may need some extra support after mediation to get your relationship back on track. Interrelate offers couples counselling to support you with specific concerns you may have.
