Due to the ever-increasing costs of conflict in the workplace, employers are increasingly turning to ADR as a solution. Employee conflict, labour disputes and discrimination claims in particular are increasingly common and employers need to take steps to stem the tide of conflict and lawsuits. ADR is an effective means to accomplish this goal. It is also the tool used by professional mediators to resolve conflicts between disputing parties.
ADR seeks to resolve conflict by cultivating co-operation and understanding. It seeks to find a solution that allows both parties to win. Above all, it seeks to protect the relationship while solving the problem.
For your convenience, a continental breakfast and catered lunch will be served each day of the workshop. Snacks, coffee and drinks will be available throughout the day.
