Event details

A live mock workplace mediation will be held for CIPD branch in North Yorks members at York University.

This event will include a full run-through of a workplace mediation based on a real life scenario.

The participants will receive copies of draft paperwork involved in the mediation process, the event will also include an outline of individual one to one meetings which precede a mediation and an example of a co-mediated workplace dispute between two to three parties.

This event is suitable for all HR professionals who are interested in introducing workplace mediation into their processes either internally or via outsourced means.

Workplace Mediation significantly reduces costs incurred by businesses in relation to long term sickness absence leave, long term and multiple grievances and ultimately employment tribunal litigation.

Book your place now. The session will be delivered by Marie Walsh of Consilia Mediation and Justine Mooney. Marie and Justine have delivered a number of co mediated workplace mediations on behalf of a variety of companies over the last three years.

The session will be interactive and will also include a full Q & A session at conclusion.
