Mediation updated

As a manager or HR person you may be dealing with a conflict between employees that is becoming difficult to manage or resolve. The conflict may be between peers, or between an employee and their manager.

Mediation is a conflict resolution strategy to help two parties to communicate with each other in a structured process with the help of an independent third party so that they can work towards resolving their conflict. The mediator will help facilitate agreement between both parties about how they can effectively work together.
