WORKPLACE MEDIATION SERVICES

WHAT IS A
WORKPLACE
MEDIATION?

Mediation is a valuable tool for resolving workplace conflict.
The process for mediation workplace conflict involves a
structured discussion between two or more workers or volunteers
with the assistance of an independent third party as the mediator.

The process employed by Acquire HR is the
‘self-determination’ process which enables
participants to communicate and reach any
decisions without influence or coercion.

Workplace mediation through an independent mediator may be
appropriate in circumstances where:

  • The workplace conflict is neither trivial nor extreme
  • The relationship between the parties
    needs to be preserved
  • There are no major power imbalances
    between the parties
  • The parties are open to participating
    in workplace mediation with a view to reach
    an agreement; and
  • The parties can commit to the
    confidentiality of the process.

WHAT IS THE
PROCESS
FOR
WORKPLACE
MEDIATION?

Once an Acquire HR mediator is appointed, we conduct a
pre-mediation interview with each participant before bringing them together (this is also known as an intake).

On a following day, the mediation will include:

  • A joint mediation session to explore the issues
  • Private sessions with each participant
  • A joint mediation session for option generation and negotiation followed by agreement (if
    possible) and closure.
