Managing Psychological Safety at Work 2022 - Part 1 - 26 July 2022 (On Demand)

Description

Addressing Bullying and Harassment to Reduce Risk of Harm

Workplace bullying and sexual harassment are major problems in New Zealand.

Bullying and sexual harassment can lead to a staggering loss of productivity, high staff turnover, and health and safety prosecution. Psychological research shows the damaging effects and harm to individuals and the workplace.

Employers have a legal obligation to ensure workers are safe from harm, including mental harm. Workplaces must identify bullying and harassment, and eliminate or minimise such risks to comply with the law.

This practical webinar will empower HR and managers to take action. Topics include:

  • Explore key differences between psychologically safe and unsafe workplaces

  • Identify bullying, discrimination, and racial and sexual harassment
  • Consider how to identify bullying, discrimination, and harassment in the workplace
