Preventing Bullying and Harassment
Harassment and bullying remain significant workplace issues despite increasing awareness of the problem. Typical harassment and bullying behaviours range from unwelcome remarks and persistent unwarranted criticism to unwanted physical contact and shouting. Those that experience these inappropriate behaviours are more likely to experience anxiety, stress and a loss of confidence.
On the course, we discuss what bullying and harassment is and what steps can be taken to establish the boundaries, behaviours and work environment that will minimise unacceptable behaviour. We will also explore the legal framework, and organisational and personal responsibilities and provide a platform from which conversations can develop and address bullying and harassment in the workplace.
