Did you know that more than 65% of performance problems at work result from strained relationships between employees?
The causes of conflict can be varied; environment (building and light levels), interpersonal relationships, management communication, personality clashes, inappropriate behaviour. The causes are many and can be a combination of factors.
What ever the cause, the 'legal routes' for grievances, disciplinaries, Employment Tribunals (ET) and lawyers rarely achieve satisfactory and sustainable outcomes.
Peaceworks has wide experience and a very successful track record (96% success rate) in mediating both public and private sector cases and are your first call for advice about whether or not mediation is appropriate for your situation.

See below the image for some positive comments about Peaceworks and workplace mediation:
"I would strongly endorse and recommend Peaceworks, particularly where the issues are complex. In my own case there was conflict within the Executive Team that had the potential for significant harm to individuals and the organization but we were steered through the mediation process to a Win/Win situation that I am confident could not have been achieved without the skills of the mediator, Chris Seaton."

"Micha was terrific and put everyone at their ease, and gave everyone plenty of opportunity to say their bit... I hugely enjoyed working alongside Micha and as ever, learned a lot. Thank you." HA, March 2011
An excellent course - you will come away much better equipped to deal positively with those you meet
The process of mediation should be common practice in society.
Very enjoyable course in a safe, engaging learning environment. Thank you
Experience and insights of the trainers is a major bonus of this course
'It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.'
I found the course extremely invigorating - it really stimulated me and I felt I had learned so much
It felt more like de-constructing some existing skills and putting them back together in a new way
I loved the informality of the group within the formality of the training
A great course for anyone working in an environment using interpersonal skills, dealing with conflict
Would love the chance to attend again in the future. I used some of the skills acquired on the same day
Peaceworks is an outstanding organisation and the skills of your team have brought about so much reconciliation
I am now better placed to tackle conflict at home and in the workplace
'Micha was terrific and put everyone at ease, and gave everyone plenty of opportunity to say their bit.'
What a great couple of weeks I've had with Peaceworks!
This was a very high quality course. An excellent intro to conflict resolution and mediation
The course was exceptionally well facilitated (the best I've ever experienced)
