23 cases in the first year

8 did not get underway

3 had a part process

11 were completed

1 became a formal case

Median duration from referral to resolution – three weeks

Cases take a day to a day-and-a-half to mediate

Evaluation It felt a much more positive method & was totally uncritical & in that way helps one move forward. The situation would have continued to escalate and get out of hand as communication was difficult. The situation would have rumbled on unsatisfactorily. I would strongly recommend mediation as an essential service I have noticed a change in both of us already.

Benefits An informal way out of a difficult situation Prevents escalation Benefits for whole team Quicker to resolve Has helped return to work Links with other initiatives
