Bullying and harassment in the workplace can lead to unhappy and unproductive employees. If left unresolved, these types of issues can deteriorate and result in costly and time-consuming outcomes, such as disciplinary action and employment tribunals.
Society has never been more aware of the problem of workplace bullying. Research has shown that 6 in 10 people have either been the victim of, or witness to, workplace bullying and most organisations have procedures in place to deal with it when it occurs. This webinar will explore what constitutes bullying and harassment and how it arises, and provide practical advice on how to identify, prevent and deal with bullying and harassment in the workplace.
On the basis that prevention is better than cure, our speakers will help you to create respectful, inclusive and supportive working practices. They will also address the additional challenges that remote working can bring in this context.
This webinar will be useful for anyone involved in training, managing or leading other team members, including in an HR capacity. It will also be valuable if you’re preparing to take on a training, management or leadership role in the future. It is open to IP professionals in all roles, including business support roles such as HR and marketing.
The webinar will be presented by experienced HR and training consultants Jane Michel and Becky Boston, of Emphasis HR & Training. It will be chaired by Debbie Slater from the CIPA Education Committee, who has been working closely with Jane on the Institute’s new “train the trainers” resources.
