Workplace Mediation

Workplace conflict, if its left unaddressed, can mean for a workplace one or more of the following consequences:

  • low morale
  • increased unplanned absenteeism
  • reduction in the quality and quantity of work
  • an increase in formal complaints
  • increased incidence of workers compensation claims
  • increased staff turnover – especially resignations

HBA Consulting has within its consulting team two former Fair Work Commission/Australian Industrial Relations Commissioners who specialize in workplace mediations. In undertaking mediations, they draw on their decades of industrial and workplace experience, across a wide range of public, private and not for profit sector employment settings. Their extensive experience in dealing with all types of industrial disputes and complaints means that they are able to design and deliver a professionally structured, practical and outcomes focused workplace mediation process, that will maximize the likelihood of achieving a worthwhile and workable outcome.

By focusing on working towards a mediated outcome that is owned by the parties in dispute, our consultants can reduce the costs and time involved in settling disputes and in many cases restore good working relationships between parties – and avoid potential legal processes.

Workplace Dispute Resolution

Most employment frameworks include specific processes to enable employees who believe that they have been disadvantaged or not provided with access to part or all of an employment term or condition, to raise the matter of concern to them and have it reviewed.

Often, this type of process is most effectively and efficiently managed by an experienced HR practitioner from outside of the organisation – because frequently the issues associated with the dispute have already involved one or more internal HR or corporate people – setting up a real or perceived conflict of interest or bias.

Dispute resolution must be carefully managed within the industrial and workplace policies and procedures that apply to each individual organisation – our consultants have decades of experience in identifying the applicable policies and procedures and developing and implementing a process that its both compliant with the employment requirements and is conducted professionally and empathically.
