While traditionally the world of business and the world of marriage and family relationships have remained disconnected, it is clear they have a major impact on each other. Building marriage and family wellness improves a company’s overall financial health, while ignoring these opportunities can decrease profitability.
Employees in healthy relationships are also physically healthier, experiencing fewer chronic health problems like stress, anxiety, and depression, saving companies money in overall health care expenditures.
Fortunately, businesses can invest in their employees in a manner that will impact both their home and work relationships – for the better! The same skills that are found in healthy relationships can be applied in the work place.
Mediation is quickly becoming an alternative dispute resolution choice in many fields, including business, family and even in the church. If you are looking to preserve relationships but struggle to come to agreement, Mediation could be a great alternative to doing nothing or taking the costly road of litigation. Mediation is a process whereby an unbiased and impartial, third-party (the mediator) assists the participating parties in making progress on issues that have come to a stand still.
