Inclusive Workplace Mediation FAQ's

At Mission Diverse we specialise in mediating issues related to discrimination or harassment, and conflicts arising from organisational changes.

Workplace mediation takes a voluntary and collaborative approach, where all parties involved willingly participate to resolve a conflict. It encourages open communication, active listening, and understanding, with the aim of finding mutually acceptable solutions.

Disciplinary process or tribunal follows a more formal and authoritative approach, focusing on determining guilt or innocence and applying appropriate disciplinary actions. Whereas mediation is not a legal process, it focuses on resolution, relationship-building, and maintaining a positive work environment between a employees.
The duration of workplace mediation varies depending on the complexity of the conflict and the number of participants involved. Some mediations can be resolved in a single session, while others may require multiple sessions spread over a few weeks. The mediator will work with the parties to establish a realistic timeframe for the mediation process.
