Creating a Positive and Healthy Workplace

Understanding & Dealing with workplace Bullying & Harassment  (1/2 day)

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.   This workshop upskills people in understanding and dealing with workplace bullying and harassment.  Facilitated in a safe environment the goal is to gain individual commitment to zero tolerance to workplace bullying and harassment.  Consistently participants report that they come away feeling empowered and more confident in identifying and dealing with unreasonable and negative behaviour.  For those who have experienced bullying they talk about renewed self-confidence.

The workshop can be customised to include your relevant policies and reporting procedures.
