Workplace Mediation Training from CAOS Conflict Management can help you establish an in-house mediation service. We can help your organisation avoid the pitfalls, and overcome the challenges of introducing this process, which is increasingly and effectively being used to resolve conflict within organisations.
The Government is keen to encourage the use of mediation by employers to help resolve workplace disputes before they escalate to the extent that they lead to Employment Tribunals. Organisations may wish to use external mediators or develop their own in-house provision. CAOS Conflict Management can help with both.
Organisations are more likely to develop their own in-house provision the larger the organisation and this is also more possible because it makes it less likely that staff working as mediators will know the staff they provide mediation for. Smaller organisations may simply wish to buy in mediation when the need arises.

"In my 20 years experience as an academic this is the best ‘in-service’ training I have experienced. The quality of the training team’s preparation and the skill with which they conducted the course was impressive."
Dr Meretta Elliott -Senior Lecturer-School of Arts-Brunel University - speaking about a 6-day Mediator training course run by Alan Sharland and colleagues.
"This was not an easy course; the challenges involved in working outside one’s usual mode of operation were considerable, but the upbeat attitude of the trainers and the calm and supportive atmosphere they created meant that I was free to work outside my comfort zone in developing an approach to assisting others deal with their own situations."
Dr Mary Richards - Subject Leader for Drama - Brunel University - also speaking about the Mediator training course.
"This was a very successful workshop, feedback described the day as “fun”, “interesting” and “informative” with a “superb” trainer who had a “very thoughtful approach”. 100% of our attendees said they had enjoyed the course and they would recommend it to colleagues."
Tania Murrell - Business Development Manager, Hillingdon Association of Voluntary Services - speaking about the workshop 'Dealing with Difficult Behaviour' run by Alan Sharland.
