Bullying & Harassment
This course is designed for line managers, team leaders, managers – or anyone who feels that they would benefit from a better understanding of how to deal with any form of bullying & harassment in the workplace.
Bullying & harassment behaviour in the workplace is unpleasant and offensive. It can affect an individual’s professional performance and psychological welfare and can be so destructive that the effects continue after work, devastating personal lives as well as careers. Harassment and bullying can result in low morale, increased sickness absence, or resignations. It is in everyone’s best interests to have a workplace free of harassment and bullying.
This training sets out to answer the common questions, concerns, and legal implications of bullying and harassment in the workplace.
