8 Training videos for Municipal Supervisors & Managers

Let's Talk about Respect: Improving Workplace Behaviours for Municipal Employees

Objective:  To give Canadian municipal supervisors and managers education and common sense tools to create a healthy working environment by preventing and responding to inappropriate workplace behaviours, including harassment, bullying & discrimination.

Here's what's in the package...

(you get UNLIMITED use for the time period you choose)

This bundle of 8 videos educates your supervisors and managers about a wide variety of workplace behaviours, such as harassment, sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination.  The first three videos are geared towards the Canadian municipal workplace because there are unique aspects to your workplace. Within these videos, in recorded webinars, Stephen discusses a number of real Canadian cases from a variety of workplaces.

 

Video #1 - The laws and policies surrounding inappropriate workplace behaviours - (55 minutes)

Video #2 - Learning from the mistakes of others: Actual inappropriate behaviours and required responses - (53 minutes)

Video #3 - Addressing actual problems from within: Stephen responding to questions/concerns - (49 minutes)

 

Whether you’re responding to a workplace incident, or you want to be pro-active with your supervisors, these videos will help your workplace prevent and respond to incidents of harassment, bullying, discrimination and other inappropriate workplace behaviours.

 

Either as a stand-alone, or as an addition to the three initial videos noted above, you can show one or more of the case videos.  Just as judges, adjudicators and arbitrators use cases from all across Canada, these cases come from various places.  Therefore, unless you need something particularly unique for your Canadian jurisdiction, all of these cases should work for your learning objectives.  These cases include:

 

#4.  Workplace Orientation. Stephen speaks directly to your new employees and supervisors, about various forms of inappropriate behaviours, including sexual harassment, all forms of human rights harassment & bullying.  He explains what is and isn’t appropriate and what to do if something goes wrong.  You can then fill in more specific details about your policies and procedures.   17:29

 

#5.  Workplace Orientation - 6 to 12 months on the job.  Use this video to follow up on Stephen’s Workplace Orientation video when your employees first joined your workplace.  You are encouraged to show this video to your new-ish employees about 6 to 12 months after they started.  Stephen reviews the various forms of inappropriate behaviours, including sexual harassment, all forms of human rights harassment & bullying.  Because new employees are often overwhelmed with information when they first start, it doesn’t hurt to remind them of these issues.   16:25

 

#9.  When an employee is labelled a “troublemaker.” This human rights case from B.C. helps supervisors to stay away from labelling people.  Instead they will be encouraged to look at the performance of an employee through new lens each time an issue arises.  The unfortunate aspect of this case is how supervisors became entrenched in their views of this woman, when she was just bringing forward legitimate concerns of discrimination based on her gender.  This case isn’t just about gender/sex discrimination, it’s about taking as much bias out of our decision making as possible.  Your supervisors will be encouraged to form their own opinions of employees, instead of just taking the word of others…and then getting into big and expensive (this one very expensive) trouble.   11:06

 

#10.  The poisoned workplace.  This human rights case from B.C. applies to any workplace, but it’s especially effective in addressing certain behaviours found in many Canadian male-dominated workplaces.  Lots of Canadian workplaces feel they are rather exempt from normal laws because “everyone acts that way.”  It’s not really bullying or discrimination when everyone goes along with it, right?!?  This case even adds the element where the complainant isn’t exactly a saint in his dealings with others at work, yet it explains the power of Canadian human rights legislation and how employers can be exposed to expensive litigation.  But it’s the role of management that really gets attention.  If your workplace is in need of improvement, and you want your supervisors to lead the way, this may be the video to watch and discuss.  10:33

 

#13.  Social media misconduct harming an employer’s reputation.  This labour arbitration case from Ontario started with front page headlines in the National Post newspaper.  We are living in a world of instant on-line postings where some employees don’t pay attention to the “sober second thoughts” of the consequences of their actions.  If you have a policy regarding off-duty conduct and it includes social media behaviour, this case will be a good reminder of what is expected.  If you don’t yet have such a policy, don’t wait until you do:  Show this and explain how you will be coming up with something shortly and ensure people understand they are responsible for their “outside” actions if they harm others in your workplace or your workplace reputation.  Social media is expanding, not contracting, so you want your employees to understand their responsibility to your workplace even when they think they say or so anything as long as it’s on the internet (this place perceived to be the free flow of anything…).  12:57

 

For each of these videos, Stephen has written up “Lesson suggestions,” helping you with ideas and even questions to help you deliver stress-free in-house training.  You don’t have to re-invent the wheel, but you are strongly encouraged to add the important elements of your workplace policies, procedures and most of all, culture.  Supervisors and managers especially will appreciate the added education.
