Training and education are essential in building and maintaining a respectful and productive workplace. However, they are not enough. Organizations also need to conduct timely, fair and objective reviews into complaints and concerns, and where necessary, hold individuals accountable through measured consequences, in order to resolve conflict in the workplace.

Marli offers a variety of workplace conflict resolution services to help organizations resolve disputes and address workplace dysfunction. Her services as an investigator are often necessary where there is a formal complaint of misconduct, harassment, discrimination or bullying.

Marli’s services as a mediator or facilitator are commonly secured when the conflicts have not yet become formal complaints but require immediate attention and resolution. Marli also is retained when there are vague or general concerns apparent through anonymous complaints, low engagement scores or high rates of turnover and absenteeism. Marli comes in – identifies the root causes – and helps leaders design a roadmap for effective positive change.

Finally, as a recognized member of the Arbitrators Association of British Columbia, Marli is retained to resolve formal grievances between unions and employers.
