Outsource mediation:
In today’s economic climate outsourcing key service provisions can offer a cost effective solution. By outsourcing your mediation service to Globis, the hard work will be done for you. Outsourcing your mediation services to Globis gives you: • On-demand mediators • Neutrality • Consistent service • Expert Advice • Your time back • A fresh perspective

The focus of mediations conducted by Globis is to make sure that the problem is solved, and so doesn’t occur again. Globis mediation services will not only address the problems a business currently has, but also improve an organisation’s productivity, whilst reducing the escalating costs of absenteeism and stress.

Your organisation may already be operating an in-house mediation scheme. The Globis Mediation Partnership is for organisations who want to partner with a leading external mediation provider to enhance their service.

The Globis Mediation Partnership scheme allows you to appoint an external mediator for cases where it might not be appropriate to use an internal mediator. This could be because of the seniority of the parties involved in the mediation, the complexity of the case or some other reason.

Mediation toolkit:
The Globis Mediation Toolkit is a 3 part training DVD aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about mediation and conflict resolution. It is the perfect deskside resource.
