Not often that we make reference in this blog to other organisations’ events, but here is one which is definitely worth talking about, and not just because we are part of it.

The Civil Mediation Council is running an event on the use of mediation as a proactive tool to resolve conflict in the workplace and the savings of time, cost and relationships which that can bring relative to a normal grievance process.

Kindly hosted in Moorgate by the Bank of England, the program looks at this question from a range of different perspectives and will offer delegates substantial insight into the whys and wherefores of this process. We are delighted to be represented on this platform alongside high profile speakers from the Civil Service, Acas and the CIPD.

I very much hope that you will be able to attend. I promise an interesting and thought-provoking session which will leave you with a new set of approaches to the effective conduct of grievances and disputes in your workplace. The booking details and information around agenda, location and timing are in the invitation.
