Based on the framework set out by the recent Tripartite Advisory on Managing Workplace Harassment, which recommends that all companies train their staff in this area, this workshop on Managing Workplace Harassment and Being an Empathetic Manager will help managers to understand the fundamentals of recognising and avoiding workplace harassment – including sexual harassment and corporate bullying.
Interactive in nature, this workshop will give participants an understanding and awareness of harassment, including learning to recognise and respond to it on an individual and organisational level. They will learn to set boundaries in an assertive yet diplomatic manner should they experience harassment, and to avoid behaviour which may be construed as harassment.
The workshop will also equip managers with the knowledge of how to handle a complaint through fair, sensitive investigations, including providing tools and techniques for dealing with incidents of workplace harassment calmly and empathetically. By developing nurturing, compassionate and effective managers in your organisation, you can create supportive working environments where employees feel that their safety and concerns are valued.
