Workplace Disruptions, Reorganizations, and ‘Change Fatigue’: Can ADR Support Resilience?
Today's government employees often operate in an environment of continuous change such as the sequester, agency re-organizations, furloughs, revision of job duties, and more. The responses to such adverse situations include succumbing, surviving, resilience, and thriving. How can ADR professionals assist employees to move towards resilience or thriving? This workshop will examine perspectives on crisis management, resilience, continuity, dealing with "change fatigue," and learning to "manage the unexpected."

On March 19, 2012, the Department of Justice hosted a Symposium on ADR, co-sponsored by the Interagency ADR Working Group (IADRWG) and the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) with Chairman Paul Verkuil moderating the discussion. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., the head of the ADR Working Group, described the Department's long standing commitment to ADR use and cited many of the impressive results of the use of mediation in resolving disputes with citizens and across the federal government. Other panelists showcased new and innovative programs involving workplace disputes, enforcement of regulations, contracts disputes with the government and other new and emerging areas.
