Mediation is an informal non - adversarial dispute process used to resolve issues in which a third party, neutral to the situation assists the two parties until an agreement is reached. Neutral mediators are experts in facilitating negotiation and settlement through encouragement and direction. Mediators work closely with both parties in finding a creative way to gain an acceptable resolution.

Ethics and Risk Management Training
There are usually negative consequences for organizations that are not conscious about the type of culture they develop.
An ethics program that exists on paper but never in the hearts, minds, and actions of the organization's employees creates a breeding ground for violations. Through our ethical climate assessment we will be able to measure the alignment of current behaviors, beliefs, values and attitudes with identified organizational values. The assessment will offer suggestions to address organizational specific needs and challenges.
The goal of workplace ethics training is to highlight, develop, and initiate concepts and best practices in creating an ethical culture and work environment.
The work environment generally referred to as an "ethical culture", is in fact a concept that brings together an ethical climate and systems-ethical culture.
How an organization teaches and demonstrates the extent to which it regards its values, is how ethical culture is determined.
Ethical Culture of an organization:
Shows employees that doing the right thing matters;
Teaching that doing what is right matters;
Formal ethics programs are involved that reward and consequence systems, and myths about organizations.
The "collective personality" is the Ethical Climate that an organization is concerned with. This is also known as the psychological view of the organization.
Ethical Climate predominantly focuses on:
Attitudes related to ethics,
Employees perceptions, and
The process of making decisions in the organization.
Our expert ethics trainers provide the very best interactive training in developing and maintaining an ethical climate and culture in the workplace. In addition to traditional areas of Ethics training, our practice specializes in workplace, law enforcement, and faith based conflicts.
