Human Resource Management

Bullying and harassment take many forms and the effects are wide reaching.  In addition to the possibility of costly legal actions, it causes stress and anxiety to those involved, increases absenteeism, lowers levels of performance and can significantly undermine organisational, team and employee morale.  This one-day programme will equip those with responsibility for staff welfare and well-being to recognise and address this potentially damaging workplace issue.

The programme is primarily intended for staff who have responsibility for the work and performance of others and also for organisations who wish to develop or to highlight the launch of a policy on bullying and harassment or a wider policy on Developing and Maintaining a Positive working Environment.

It is presented through short lectures, video presentations, case studies and open forum.
