University 'highly commended' at the National Mediation Awards


We are delighted that the University of Sheffield has been 'highly commended' in The Professional Mediators’ Association Awards.

Our submission clearly demonstrated that we have an internal mediation scheme which actively engages key stakeholders including ; trade union and HR representatives, senior and line managers to work with staff across campus.

We were also able to successfully evidence the innovative activities that we have used to promote workplace mediation as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism.

Chair of the Joint Union Campus Committee, Kath Southern said; “This is an innovative and collaborative scheme enabling the Trade Unions and University to work towards an effective internal mediation scheme”
