This training program will discuss the definition of workplace bullying and detail strategies to implement a corporate policy that gets buy-in from employees. It will also discuss how to empower employees, supervisors and managers to prevent bullying and offer a wide perspective on regulatory updates on workplace bullying.
Workplace bullying is systematic psychological abuse that degrades and humiliates, and causes anxiety, depression, burnout, and lower levels of job satisfaction in targets and bystanders. Behaviors include frequent yelling, manipulation of work, nasty emails, social isolation, and a host of others. If allowed to flourish, bullying causes increased turnover, communication breakdown, reduced quality in work and poor customer service. In the end, bullying creates an unsafe and unhealthy work environment that can cost an organization millions if not addressed.
This webinar will analyze these issues and provide best practices for corrective and preventive actions to ensure regulatory compliance and a positive organizational culture.
