Dignity at Work

Creating a Safe Work Environment

Employees working in more diverse work places need to understand and be able to work with difference effectively. Sometimes difference can become a point of conflict and lead to inappropriate behaviour. Employers who seek to develop a safe and inclusive work environment are investing in employee workshops to make explicit and share appropriate behaviours.

A practical and interactive workshop to increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of employees to recognise and deal constructively with bullying behaviour at work and to develop a clear understanding of the importance of policy and practice.

The course is experiential and allows for reflection on one's own attitudes and values. In a safe environment participants can express their concerns and fully explore behaviour, both their own and that of others.
