Addressing bullying, harassment and discrimination in the workplace, exploring micro aggressions, unconscious bias and bystander responsibility

Bullying and Harassment

Designed to inspire positive cultural change in the workplace...

Bullying and harassment are indicative of an unhealthy work culture and are unfortunately common challenges in the workplace today. It can be damaging to the victim, the bystander and ultimately, the overall performance of the team. There are repercussions if bullying and harassment goes unchecked in the workplace such as: 

  • ​It compromises the performance of your organisation, it's managers and workforce

  • Staff attendance decreases/an increase of staff turnover

  • It can be reflected in your customers' experience 

  • It compromises your duty of care to employees and colleagues 

  • It renders organisations non-compliant with The Equality Act 

An inclusive work environment inspires individuals to examine their personal impact and take responsibility for it. This leads to clarity and recognition of unacceptable standards of behaviours and having the confidence to address them. Bystander responsibility is also a powerful means to challenge unacceptable behaviour and language in the workplace. 

Our training programmes support organisations to build an inclusive workplace culture, helping them tackle bullying and harassment and encourage positive behaviour change. Our workshops reinforce how to challenge unacceptable language, counter micro-aggressions and underline the importance of bystander responsibility. We tailor workshops and programmes for every level of an organisation, to reflect unique issues and existing cultures.
