Conflict Management through Mediation in Companies & Small Business
Mediation assists small business in a cost effective and efficient way. Employee disputes, partnership and director disputes are best approached through mediation in order to preserve those necessary relationships that not only allow those involved to enjoy their working environment but to preserve the very existence of the business entity and its profitability. Many small businesses involve family members and if the business fails everone involved is likely to suffer financially, even the children of the parties. Before approaching lawyers to commence proceedings see a mediator first.
Workplace mediations are effective when used early as problems arise, before both sides becoming entrenched and the working relationship deteriorates to a point of no return. Negative conflict between employees affects not only the parties involved but their work colleagues and even the profitability of the business.
There is a great deal of flexibility in the use of mediation. Even the intake processes involved may help those involved or their supervisors to better understand the issues and dynamics involved. Don’t push conflict under the carpet, it needs to be dealt with before it is beyond control.
