Employees' guide to responding to workplace bullying

Employees' guide to responding to workplace bullying

This program's focus is to assist employees in dealing with harassment in the workplace

In this session the focus is on the employees — what all employees should know about what constitutes workplace bullying and how to respond to harassment in the workplace. It focuses on the kinds of instruments available to employees to battle against workplace bullying. It is important that all employees have a thorough understanding as to what kinds of things might constitute ‘harassment’ and what kinds of impact that might have. Harassment in the workplace can come in various shapes and forms. However, in general it is about treating everyone the same way (i.e., fairly) no matter who the individual might be and how different he/she might be from others. As we all know, employees can be different from each other in many different ways. That is why it is critical to make sure they are all treated fairly and similarly. If an organization is not able to maintain a well-established approach in this regard, it may have to deal with difficult situations that might be significantly unproductive for the organization. In general, it can cause several different outcomes that are typically negative for the company. That is why training in this area is critical for all employees. It is also critical for employees to understand what kinds of options they have in dealing with workplace bullying and harassment.
