Managing Workplace Bullying & Harassment

Bullying and harassment  is a very real workplace experience for many employees.   For many people,  going to work every day can feel like entering a war zone.  Research undertaken for the Department of Labour in 2009 revealed that the majority of employees will, at some time during their careers, be exposed to workplace bullying directly, or indirectly as observers. 

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.

Many employers and people leaders struggle with first identifying that there is a workplace bullying or harassment  problem, and secondly what to do about it.  At Shine People we have years of experience in advising and supporting employers to adress this issue, putting in place the frameworks and tools to deal effectively with workplace bullying and reduce the risk of failing to comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act and other relevant legislation. We can support you with the following:

  • Policy development and implementation
  • Training of line managers and supervisors to identify and manage workplace bullying and harassment issues
  • Training of your people  to understand what workplace bullying is, and isn't, and their role in creating respectful and bully free workplaces
  • Training of Workplace Bullying and Harassment First Responders - people in your workplace who are first points of contact for WPBH issues
  • Coaching to help a bully to understand the behaviors that are getting them into trouble
  • Coaching of a target to help them to become 'bully proof'
