Tulsa, OK, June 03, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Employment disputes can be the difference between prosperity and poverty for many organizations. Growing companies, government offices, and universities are discovering that mediation is an effective way of resolving conflicts and disputes that arise in the workplace. Unresolved conflicts lead to reduced productivity and increased costs. Costs associated with litigation, employee turnover and adversarial procedures are rarely recovered and can be devastating to a company’s bottom line. Employment mediation can provide a way to resolve many disputes before they escalate.
Adopting mediation skills in the workplace can help reduce problems ranging from one-on-one employee grievances, management conflicts, and even consumer complaints. Employment mediation is a tried and tested dispute resolution technique involving the use of a neutral third party to help bring the parties to their own agreement to a dispute and resolves issues in a fair and timely manner. “Employment mediation programs have been embraced by fortune 500 companies for years, however there has been a noticeable increase in smaller businesses either creating their own in house program or retaining third party mediators” says Shelly Kamm, Associate Director of the Tulsa office.
The Mediation Institute of Tulsa is Oklahoma's premier mediation training provider in alternative dispute resolution, offering courses in both the Tulsa and Oklahoma City offices.
