Consulting an expert in international labour mediation in order to prevent and/or solve work conflicts is a not common method but more and more necessary nowadays
At CONZIERTA, we understand mediation, Spanish and international business arbitration and resolution of corporate conflicts as the transformation process of the relations among parties that will result in agreements capable of settle the interest gap. The final target is to foster long-term, fluid and fair relations that help manage reputation and diversity in each of the countries where the multinational is based, building a preventive work in the managing of the work force. Moreover, if the conflict has already arisen, we manage and conduct it to a negotiated solution.
Based in Madrid, our company is composed by the founder partner and a team of specialists and collaborators established in most of the countries of the American continent.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
CONZIERTA has been created with the following objectives:
- Bringing social peace to organizations, providing negotiated solutions among workers and/or their legal representatives and the Direction. Nowadays, mediation processes are the best alternative to trials and the deadlock of any inter-party relations.
- Being capable of understanding the issues present in each of the countries where the multinational is based, in virtue of one decade experience of coexistence with the international social agents. Several cultures coexist inside multinational companies, with different ways of doing and understanding the environment as the result of the diversity of people working in its bosom.
- Adapting to all kind of situations and to any organization, despite the field of activity. CONZIERTA works with a flexible methodology as well as with a tailor-made process for every conflict, from a business and a human relations point of view.

Our challenge consists in reaching agreements and to maintain them in the long term, with a social and business perspective, helping finding solutions that fulfil the parties’ expectations, that is, win-win system.
