This course will help implement policies, procedures and best practices for bullying and harassment in the workplace.
During the past decade, there has been a significant, almost seismic change in workplace attitudes about the definition and acceptance of “unacceptable behaviour”.
Behaviour which was previously regarded as “part of the company culture” may now be perceived as totally unacceptable; behaviour which was previously “swept under the carpet” or ignored without any penalty is now open for debate, discussion and often “judgement” in a variety of open public forums.
Employers are increasingly recognising that employees, and even prospective employees are looking to the company to take the lead in providing a “bully free/harassment free working environment.
