Expert advice

Our team of trainers, advisers and mediators work with some of the South West's largest private and public sector employers. Our unique insight into Britain's workplaces brings a wealth of experience and fresh ideas that can help you to improve business performance.

Our expert advisers can help you to review your policies, deal with difficult behaviours or bullying, set up works councils and employee forums, handle redundancies, tackle absence, improve staff engagement and much more. Further information is available on our Training Courses, Workshops and Projects page.

Have you considered mediation as a way forward?

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential form of alternative dispute resolution. Acas can provide expert mediators to help resolve workplace conflict, train your managers in essential mediation skills or even set up your own in-house mediation capability.
