The York Region Workplace Mediation and Training Roster provides specialized and professional mediation services for healthier, more collaborative workplaces.
Workplace mediation is a safe, voluntary, and confidential process aimed at attempting to resolve conflict in the workplace. A neutral trained mediator will facilitate a process aimed at dispute or issue resolution, improved communication and workplace relations, decreased stress and will help parties and employers establish guidelines for interpersonal and environmental workplace factors. The mediator does not make decisions or render judgments. Participants will have an opportunity to speak and communicate with each other (where appropriate), understand and identify issues that require resolution, identify possible solutions, and if all parties agree- to draft a non-legally binding understanding.
Mediation often results in healthier, more collaborative work environments, and can reduce the occurence of conflict and conflict related ligitation.
Mediators can assist organizations, employees and HR managers in the following capacities:
