A  fresh take on mediation 

 HIVE originally launched as The Society of Professional Mediators to promote effective use of mediation in workplace and employment mediation.

In June 2016, consultation was sought with mediators on their thoughts on how The Society(as it was then known) can support them better. The result and feedback we received from mediators led to HIVE's creation. 

We came to the conclusion that Mediation did not need yet another professional body or association. What it needs is an independent body which promotes the interest of mediators and functions as an informative platform for non mediators.

Hive In A Nutshell

Objectivity is key for our agenda and as we do not deliver mediation services we are best placed to support stakeholders in the market. We focus on helping mediators build their practice and supporting the use of dialogue in workplace & employment conflict settings.

We are an energetic and down to earth team of volunteers with an efficient work ethic. We frequently encourage members to get involved as much as possible.


HIVE's approach is to increase practical understanding of mediation among professionals to help build trust in the process and in mediators.


We create as many opportunities as possible to engage non mediators and connect them to industry professionals.

We do this by hosting informative events for HR professionals, training and development sessions for mediators and industry updates for our members.


We hope you will join our growing community and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

By building relationships with non mediators

we increase awarenesss of its purpose 

and potential drive usage
