Would you like more information on our Workplace Mediation Services in Sydney? The following questions will help you gain an insight into what to expect.

What is workplace mediation?

Workplace mediation is a confidential process whereby a neutral third person facilitates communication between two or more people with issues in dispute.

What is the mediator’s role?

The role of the mediator is to provide a process designed to identify the issues, develop options and reach an agreement that satisfies the needs of the people in dispute.

Workplace mediators ensure that everyone involved is able to express their view of the issues and their needs, and to feel heard.

What are the goals of workplace mediation?

The goal of workplace mediation is to empower people to take responsibility for the conflict and its resolution.

Most workplace mediations focus on improving relationships between the people involved in workplace conflict. Some focus solely on the key issues and working on an amicable separation.

Workplace mediations aimed at improving relationships focus on how the issues are discussed, the individuals’ style and their decision-making process. Perspective-taking and viewing the conflict from a broader perspective are also central to this type of workplace mediation. The mediation itself acts as the first step for individuals in modelling new problem-solving behaviours. The mediation marks the beginning of a new and effective working relationship.
