Mediation is a non-legalistic human approach to resolving disputes

We know that mismanaged and emotionally draining disputes can be costly to business both in time and reputation. Our qualified and experienced mediator can help resolve issues before they escalate into lengthy court disputes.

Engaging an independent mediator offers employees, management, customers and suppliers, an opportunity to discuss their issues respectfully with each other in a safe and moderated environment.

Situations where businesses may benefit from mediation include:

  • Conflicts between staff members
  • Customer or supplier disputes
  • Dissolving of business partnerships
  • Differences of opinion or misunderstandings in family businesses
  • Real, or perceived, bullying or harassment
  • Any potentially difficult meeting.

Don’t let a simple misunderstanding escalate into a toxic dispute. Engage a mediator.

Benefits of mediation

Mediation is less disruptive and less costly than extended litigation, and mediation delivers other benefits including:

  • Better staff morale
  • More engaged staff
  • Improved communication and collaboration
  • Identification and addressing of underlying issues
  • Empowered staff and management
  • Improved workplace culture
  • Reductions in staff turnover
  • Enhanced workplace relationships

If you have a situation where mediation may help, contact Carix today.
