More about the program:
Conflict resolution tools like mediation and restorative processes are important options for investigators and HR professionals to be aware of. Our panelists will share experiences ranging from administering ombuds programs within large institutions, piloting the use of restorative practices at a major corporation, and mediating individual workplace conflicts of all shapes and sizes. We will discuss opportunities for investigators and HR professionals to expand the services they can offer to support employees in those cases where more than an investigation is needed.
