Overview

Disputes occur everywhere in life and business but it’s how we deal with them that counts. Too often dispute resolution is seen as a distraction and a waste of time but the reality is that mediation has a high degree of success. Working through disputes using mediation as a proven tool can achieve successful outcomes while saving time, money and also preserving relationships in ways that litigation often cannot. 

In the ninth mediation audit by The Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), covering the period to September 2020, the number of mediations carried out in England and Wales increased by 38% (from 12,000 mediations in the 2018 report, to 16,500 mediations in the 2020 report) with an overall settlement rate of 93%, an improvement from 89% in the 2018 audit. 73% of cases were settled on the day and a further 21% settled shortly afterwards, thanks to progress made at the mediation itself. 

The number of online mediations prior to the COVID-19 pandemic was only 2%. As might be expected, this jumped dramatically to 89% during the period between March and September 2020.

It could save your company a lot of time and money if employment disputes and disputes with external suppliers could be dealt with quickly and effectively using mediation. This webinar is a practical introduction to the complete process, covering everything from choosing a mediator, to getting the most out of the process. 

Who should attend?
