Within the workplace environment, disputes often arise between employees, or between employees and their employer. Many of these disputes can be worked out on their own. Some, however, escalate to the point where the parties can no longer work effectively together. When this type of situation goes unresolved, it hampers productivity and in some cases, threatens the stability of the organization. Mediation can be an effective and cost-efficient way to resolve employee disputes, because it occurs in a non-adversarial and non-threatening setting that is conducive to dispute resolution.
At Advanced Mediation Solutions (AMS), we have in-depth experience resolving employee disputes. AMS is owned and operated by professional mediator Roseann Vanella. Roseann has over a quarter of a century of experience in the corporate world, and she spent much of that time negotiating and resolving complex business arrangements.
Roseann handles each employee dispute mediation personally. She is honest and straightforward, and her clients appreciate her down-to-earth approach. As a neutral mediator, she is knowledgeable, patient, and able to empathize and understand the points of view of all parties involved.
Innovative Employee Dispute Mediation
Roseann understands that, in the business environment, each circumstance is unique and there is no “one size fits all” approach that effectively resolves all employee disputes. For example, there are times when a conflict has gone on so long, the parties cannot stand to be in the same room together. In such cases, one-on-one sessions might be appropriate in the beginning to allow each side to “vent” and give their point of view before sitting down together.
Whatever the starting point, Roseann’s role is to foster an environment where the parties can communicate openly and respectfully while she guides them toward a mutually acceptable and actionable resolution. This may be accomplished in just a couple of sessions, or it may take a few more, depending on the specific circumstances. In each case, Roseann puts her extensive experience to work, utilizing time-tested methodology to keep the conversation constructive and on track.
It is important to understand that, while employee dispute mediation can be an effective method for resolving conflicts between employees and/or between employees and their employer, it should not be used for instances involving violations of the law and/or violations of company policy.
