Creating a Positive and Healthy Workplace

Preventing and Managing Workplace Bullying & Harassment (1 day)

Bullying and harassment is a very real workplace experience for many employees.  It is also an identified work hazard.   Workplace bullying affects people physically and mentally, resulting in increased stress levels, decreased emotional wellbeing, reduced coping strategies and lower work performance.  Bullying is bad for business, affecting productivity, disrupting the workplace and impacting on reputation and bottom line results.

Employers who fail  to respond appropriately risk breaching legislation, including the Employment Relations Act, Human Rights Act, Health and Safety and Employment Act and Harassment Act. 

Many employers and managers struggle with first identifying that there is a workplace bullying or harassment  problem, and secondly what to do about it.  

This workshop  is aimed at senior leaders, business owners,  line managers, people leaders and supervisors.  It takes in our basic ½ day course and builds in additional resources to equip managers in identifying, preventing and responding  to complaints of workplace bullying and harassment.
