What is Workplace Mediation?

It is an informal non-adversarial interest-based discussion between at least two persons, about identified concerns in a workplace. This discussion is very structured with a prescribed time and expectations in behaviour and style of communication.


The intent of workplace mediation is to clarify misunderstandings and support the development of how the group or two persons in the workplace will work together going forward. Workplace mediation differs from workplace restoration in that the emphasis on developing a working plan to re-establish trust and engagement process in workplace restoration is not the focus of workplace mediation but can be a healthy outcome of the mediation process.
