Is There Mediation In The Workplace?

Yes. The most costly of all disputes in the work place remain interpersonal disputes. Some involve only a few individuals ­ some involve entire departments. The costs associated with lost work time resulting from endless gripe sessions with co­workers are uncharted, but undoubtedly enormous. In addition, consider the emotional cost to employees and their families when they take these disputes home to their families. The stress caused by continuous, unresolved conflict in the work place has triggered divorce, suicide and worse ­ the all to familiar murders in the office.
