AVOID LITIGATION, EMPLOYEE ATTRITION
& NEGATIVE PUBLICITY ONLINE
Good employees are hard to find, especially in the National Capital region. Over 80% of employees have admitted to searching for other jobs due to conflict in the workplace. If the conflict continues, it can lead to a downturn in workplace morale, decreased motivation, feelings of dissatisfaction about the company -- and poor Glassdoor reviews. Worst case: an unresolved workplace conflict can lead to expensive litigation proceedings and even more damaging publicity on social media and in the press.
How can a company overcome this risk? By choosing to allow their employees to mediate their disputes confidentially with us. We are expert negotiators and as a neutral party, we can evaluate the situation in an unbiased way, unlike a company's HR department. At the end of the mediation, we draft a Memorandum of Agreement (or Understanding) that serves as a guide for the parties and as a record for the company.
Bottom line: losing good employees due to stress, disputes, EEO issues, and other interpersonal issues with coworkers is costly and damaging. Our goal is to resolve the issues confidentially and ensure the parties will be able to handle any future conflict more effectively.
