If you want a harmonious workplace environment that can boost your employees’ productivity, then mediation is the right path

The TCM Group launches the “Clear your desk of conflict before the New Year’’ campaign!

Start the New Year with a clean slate through mediation

• Innovative campaign to help Human Resources managers resolve disputes and grievances
• Twitter & Facebook campaign asks for clients and followers to send a picture of their desk
• Mediation, as the best alternative dispute resolution mechanism, saves organisations’ money & time

The TCM Group is delighted to announce the launch of the ‘Clear Your Desk of Conflict campaign’, for the third year running. Since 2008 the group has saved approximately £600,000 for their clients during quarter three, with a campaign goal to get all of the internal conflicts resolved before the New Year. TCM has worked with an impressive client list over the years including: BT, Lloyds Banking Group, Marks & Spencer, HSBC, Topshop, DWP and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

Statistics reveal that disputes referred to formal litigation can expect a 50% success rate as opposed to an average of 85-90% in mediation where both parties are willing participants. Conflict is natural however there is no doubt that it can have a negative influence on almost every aspect of the modern workplace. The TCM Group has developed high quality, constructive and innovative remedies for disputes and conflicts. These solutions are then delivered by some of the leading dispute resolution professionals in the UK and Europe.

David Liddle, TCM’s Managing Director

“Conflict can be extremely costly. In our 20 years of experience, we have seen numerous cases where unresolved workplace conflict became divisive and very damaging. “If you want a harmonious workplace environment that can boost your employees’ productivity, then mediation is the right path" for solving those disputes. It’s not science, mediation just works. “

Each year, during this holiday period, Human Resources managers are overwhelmed with the amount of grievances and complaints that pile up on their desk. This campaign’s goal is to get all of their internal conflicts resolved and off their desk before 2012. It is all about ‘starting the new year with a clean slate’. Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner and everyone is getting excited about spending time with their loved ones. Mediation can provide the same environment and feeling in a workplace – peace at work is not a myth, it is something that TCM provides to each of their clients.

Mike Emmott, Adviser, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)
