Equality & Diversity

Steve Hindmarsh Ltd is committed to diversity and equality in how we work as an organisation. We demonstrate our commitment in our individual conduct, how we represent our organisation and its work, how we manage and deliver our services.

We are committed to equality and diversity issues as a core component of our personal and professional development. We welcome openness and dialogue in working to develop our awareness and practice.


Culture at Work

Increasingly diverse markets, global talent sourcing and international job mobility all result in powerfully diverse workplaces. Mediation and conflict resolution can help diverse teams strengthen trust and maximise their business potential. Mediation´s approach to cultural differences and commonalities can strengthen working relationships and play a vital role in any resolution process or escalation management procedure.


Equality, Diversity and Conflict

The duty of employers and employees on equality and diversity issues can be compromised when conflict gets in the way of effective management, fair procedures and acceptable behaviour. When we believe or perceive that issues are linked to who we are as a person; our gender, ethnicity or sexuality then we can feel hurt and unjustly treated.

Open, constructive two-way talk on differences can often add value and release potential within your organisation. Talk with us in confidence about how our training and services can support your organisation.
