This workshop introduces legislation and best practice strategies and policies to deal with bullying and harassment in the workplace.

Introduction

In the on-going battle to recruit and retain the right staff, employers are increasingly recognising that their employees are looking to the company and its managers to provide a bully free/harassment free working place.

As part of the legal framework, The Protection from Harassment Act came into effect in November 2014 in Singapore. It places a number of challenges on HR professionals and managers and also employees, both now and in the future.

This one day seminar will introduce you to the legislation and its background and offer a number of best practice strategies and policies to deal with bullying and harassment.
