Description

Working in a Harassment-Free Environment

The clearest evidence of respect in the workplace can be found in productive, creative employees who share an awareness and appreciation of each other. When a workplace is lacking in respect, the signs can be destructive: high levels of turnover, conflict, and grievances, low levels of morale, attendance, and productivity.

This 2 hour training program provides a strong foundation for workplace respect and civility as well as easy to implement strategies to begin building more respectful workplaces today.

There is a pressing need to develop more respectful and harassment-free work environments in Canada

  • 60% of participants report harassment as most commonly experienced in the workplace
  • 30% experienced sexual harassment
  • 21% experienced violence
  • 3% experienced sexual violence

Structure

LifeWorks Learning workshops go beyond awareness, and allow participants to practice and engage with the topic. Facilitated in small groups, participants can expect learning activities like small-group discussion, breakout rooms, role-play, scenario-based learning – as well as more standard elements like Q&A, polling and chat functionality.
