Welcome to MediationWorks of North Carolina

MediationWorks provides mediation services for businesses, public and private agencies, and individuals. MediationWorks is dedicated to helping employers and individuals find effective solutions for workplace and family conflicts.

Why Mediation Works

Mediation is a confidential process used to resolve differences. A neutral facilitator or mediator assists parties to communicate effectively about difficult issues. The mediation process creates a safe environment to share perspectives, explore options and seek solutions that satisfy all parties’ interests. Mediators are skilled in techniques that foster mutual understanding and empower parties to determine their own outcomes.
 

The mediation process includes several key elements:

  • Creating a safe space
  • Sharing information and perspectives
  • Identifying the main concerns and interests of the parties
  • Brainstorming options
  • Reaching an agreement
There are numerous benefits for using mediation over formal arbitration or litigation. It is typically much quicker and often less expensive than arbitration or litigation. Mediated agreements are always voluntary and are, therefore, more emotionally satisfying and likely to lead to compliance than settlements imposed by outside authorities.
