"Bullying in the Workplace - Implications and Solutions"
presented by: Judith DeVries, Challenger Gray & Christmas
Recent statistics have shown that one out of six individuals have been bullied at some point during their careers. Workplace bullying is three times as prevalent as illegal discrimination, and is now considered more common than sexual harassment. Bullying needs to be viewed as a type of non-physical violence and be addressed with clarity of word and action. Individuals need not remain victims nor do the Human Resources professionals that must deal with the consequences of this behavior.
Upon completion of the webinar, HR professionals will gain understanding of:
- The differences between bullying and harassment
- What are the impacts on victims and costs to the organization?
- Recognize barriers to success in changes for bullies and their victims
- Practical strategies for dealing with offenders
