Can't the manager just sort it out?

Managers are great at solving problems. They have the power and the experience to identify and address many different types of workplace problems. Interpersonal problems can have many layers and a manager's position of authority over the people involved can sometimes make it even harder to get the people to speak candidly about the problem before them. Employment mediation offers employees a neutral outside party to listen and facilitate a conversation between employees. The goal of employment mediation is to get your team working at optimal capacity.
