Human Resource Managers have been advised to embrace the use of Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms as a means of dealing with complexities that arise at the workplace.
The adoption and timely application of Mediation, which is one of the three main mechanisms of ADR, by HR professionals within their respective organizations, would greatly enhance relations between labour and management, as well as strengthen the workforce towards organizational productivity and growth.
The Chief Executive Officer of Gamey and Gamey Group, Austin Gamey, who gave the advice at the closing session of the just ended two-day leadership training programme dubbed “A Masterpiece of High Quality Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness” held at the Peduase Valley Resort, noted that since HR is the human side of business and plays a pivotal part in the business chain in every institution, it’s incumbent on HR mangers to master the art of Mediation.
According to him, it’s also essential for heads of departments to acquaint themselves with the five threads of mediation namely, Self Mediation, Managerial Mediation, Preventive Mediation, Executive Mediation and Professional Mediation.
These threads of mediation, Mr. Gamey explains, need to be learnt and woven into organisational policies to ensure harmony and peaceful coexistence at the workplace
“If you don’t weave it, you are bound to face problems,” he stressed.
He said gaining the full knowledge and understanding of the PULSE frame and the GHOST Principle could assist corporate institutions and their managements to transit from old unrelated policies to adopt new creative and innovative policies.
The two-day leadership training programme organized by Ghana’s leading Human Resource and Labour Relations solutions firm, the Gamey and Gamey Group aimed at using its new high profile training course to help in enhancing quality leadership and organizational productivity in the corporate environment.
In attendance at the workshop were Chairpersons and Members of Boards of companies and commissions, General Managers, Human Resource Directors, Heads of Union Organization and Chief Executives Officers.
At the end of the two-day training workshop participants were presented with certificates.
