You may be thinking the term "bully" is a bit strong for the workplace context...
For most people when they hear the term "bully", they picture a large, menacing adolescent on the schoolyard playground. They rarely think of a corporate CEO, Chief Accountant, Global Health Professional, manager, colleague, etc.
But workplace bullying does exist, so much so that it prompted a campaign to pass the Healthy Workplace Bill (HWB) in the U.S., which has been introduced in more than 31 states.
While there is an indication of growing legislation on the topic of workplace bullying, there are limited resources to help organizations prevent bullying, aside from Anti-bullying policy templates.
If you're interested in proactively moving your organization in the direction of a bully-free workplace, register for the webinar to learn more.
As a leader or HR professional you may struggle with:
- Knowing when to label workplace conduct as bullying
- How to appropriately respond to claims of workplace bullying
- How to prevent workplace bullying
Learn a few tools and strategies spanning the employee life cycle to address the above.
The 3 accomplices of workplace bullying:
Workplace bullying cannot continue without formal or informal organizational support. Workplace bullies need the right organizational environment to thrive: culture + policies + procedures
Learn key evaluation criteria to understand how your organization aligns.
This is not just about the "Great Resignation"...
There's a lot of focus right now on what's called The Great Resignation, massive employee turnover. But addressing workplace bullying is not just about employees leaving, it's about organizational ethics, employee wellbeing and potential legal implications.
Responding to workplace bullying is not a quick fix to a temporary problem, but instead an organizational stance about how it values its employees and the type of workplace culture it wants to build.
If this sounds like your organization then this is the webinar for you.
Defining workplace bullying can be ambiguous but the consequences are not
Indeed there is not a clear consensus on how workplace bullying is defined both at the legal or organizational level, but the consequences of unaddressed workplace bullying are clear:
- high turnover
- low employee satisfaction
- high employee stress
- low organizational commitment, etc.
Learn how to investigate if any of the above trends in your organization could be related to bullying.
