Get insights into the workings of mediation

Ever wondered what mediation is really like?

Without actually undergoing mediation yourself, it's not always easy to understand how it works and know when best to use it.

The Acas conference - The Changing Face of Mediation 2014 not only shows you what mediation is like in practice, with a detailed look at the various stages of the process at work, but also looks at current and future developments in mediation.

The conference, which features high-profile speakers including the Acas Chief Executive Anne Sharp, follows the mediation process step-by-step, giving useful insights into how it can benefit your organisation.

Under scrutiny are the various ways mediation is currently used by different organisations, how HR has a role to play in mediation, and how to launch a successful mediation scheme in your workplace.

In a discussion about the 'contemporary mediation landscape', the conference will also highlight the key differences between workplace mediation and judicial mediation.

Acas can visit your organisation and help you build effective working relationships, showing you how to use mediation in your workplace; for more details go to Disputes and mediation: how Acas can help.

Acas also provides practical Mediation training, and offers accredited courses for the Certificate in Internal Workplace Mediation.
