Workplace Mediation Services

Are you feeling caught in the middle of your employees’ differences? 

Are employees complaining about disparate treatment, unfair practices, and not getting their needs met…all while the work isn’t getting done

Feeling a lack of support from your leadership and not sure where to turn?

Time to re-imagine how you’re managing your people? 

Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) and E-Mediation (E-Med) available to resolve Workplace Conflict Worldwide

 

Why go online?

E-Med is a voluntary process of resolving disputes with the assistance of a neutral 3rd party. Using technology is like a 4th party to the process.

Research has shown that E-Med leads to greater satisfaction than traditional in-person mediation and reduces power differences, yielding a perception that the process is ‘fair and equitable.’

The benefits are many:

  • Enhances one’s physical and emotional safety when using a virtual platform
  • Reduces face-to-face discomfort when addressing conflict
  • Reaches across geographical differences in locations
  • More cost - and time-effective
  • Reduces the duration for getting to resolution, leading to improved workplace relations
  • Expands the use of technology beyond typical work applications…a no-brainer to younger employees
  • Restores workplace relationships and gets back to the business of doing business!

Dr. Debra Dupree

Employment Mediator - Workplace | Workforce Conflict Consultant

Dr. D is passionate about making a difference for people in conflict.

Growing up in a family-owned business, she saw first-hand how leadership conflicts were destructive to peers, employees, customer relations, and the bottom line.

As a former employee in both public agencies and private enterprises, she directly experienced the challenges and disruptions of unhealthy co-worker relations and leadership challenges faced in attempts to get back on track, often with dismal results. She re-imagined the future if only people would engage in constructive conversations.  She realized that they didn't know how.

With nearly 30 years of experience, Debra brings a unique perspective and skillset to ‘people differences’ as a Behavioral Health Specialist and Mediator. She vowed to improve communication to strengthen relationships and build healthier, happier lives because she knows it’s achievable. And she’s done it!

Her niche market is workplace mediation and facilitation of the interactive process for employers and employees working with medical conditions. She's worked with financial institutions, school districts, governmental agencies, and family-owned businesses, to name a few.
