Dealing with workplace harassment, bullying and discrimination to create a respectful workplace

This session includes the legal aspects of Harassment, but goes beyond, to tackle many issues that can disrupt the workplace. Some behaviour is considered Harassment. Others include aspects of bullying. Others still are just inappropriate and no one knows what category to put them into. Regardless, most of the problems come down to problems with communication. Not just how we communicate with one another, but how supervisors and managers communicate what is acceptable and what is not. In this customized session your supervisors and managers will learn ways of creating a respectful work environment.

 

Using thought-provoking and fun exercises, they will learn that a respectful workplace is not difficult to achieve. In fact, with a bit of work, it can be very easy. They will find out what must be done, to avoid costly liability, employee turn-over and employee/customer dissatisfaction. At the end of the session, your workplace leaders will feel more confident to address a variety of issues, including Harassment and just plain disrespectful behaviour.

Who Benefits?

Workplace leaders. This session may also be done with employees and workplace leaders together, so that issues can be raised and addressed effectively. Sometimes the male-dominated workplaces are the most difficult, because us men have been socialized a bit differently and the norm of a male-dominated workplace is not always respectful. Those who attend will discuss issues head-on, and find ways to address problems of disrespect, even when it seems such behaviour has “thrived” for years.

 

Of course, the education of the legal issues of Harassment will also benefit those who attend. Everyone who supervises people needs to know their legal obligations, on behalf of their employer. If they don’t, they risk an internal or external workplace human rights complaint, due to Harassment. Of course, there is also the risk of bad publicity and bad customer relations. Your workplace leaders will benefit from a better understanding of Harassment and all forms of disrespectful behaviours, and they will feel more confident to tackle most issues before they become a big, messy and expensive, deal. When any issues of respect get more complex, they will know to seek advice from within their workplace instead of letting things get worse.
