Organisations have legal obligations to ensure dignity at work for employees. The consequences of not doing so can result in increased costs and absenteeism, and reduced morale and productivity.
We are communicating and working in different ways, and it is even more important that we ensure dignity and respect for employees in a hybrid working environment. This highly interactive training workshop will focus on the following:
- Module 1: understanding the legal and policy framework governing dignity at work – bullying, harassment, and sexual harassment
- Module 2: understanding the nature and impact of bullying, harassment and sexual harassment; exploring scenarios
- Module 3: managing dignity at work issues and complaints – through policies, procedures, mediation, and investigations; developing your learning through a case study
- Module 4: creating positive and respectful working environments
Method of Delivery
This is a highly interactive programme, delivered via Zoom, with an emphasis on practical skills development using a range of learning interventions including the following:
