Dignity at Work

Consider the costs and risks of workplace bullying & harassment



‘…..got a bit of a sense of humour bypass, have we?’

‘he’s just not a people person, never will be…’

‘she’s a real ‘ball breaker’, but she gets results…’

Quite possibly, you will have heard these before. Sometimes these types of comments are the workplace chat that excuses inappropriate behavior. You don’t have to go to the extremes of political correctness to make your workplace somewhere that’s professional and personable; a place where people want to work. Somewhere that doesn’t stand for bullying and harassment, that does not compromise dignity.

Who is it for?

Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders.

What is it about?

There are legal, commercial and ethical reasons for taking this stuff seriously and we’ll touch on them. But more importantly, we’ll look at what can be done in a low key, common sense way to effectively nip any inappropriate behaviours in the bud – making sure that the environment you work in is positive, productive and a pleasant place to be.
