Workplace Harassment Training
Workplace Harassment Training
Workplace harassment can have devastating impacts – not only for the employees facing such behaviours, but also on a company’s success. The consequences of an unhealthy environment are far-reaching and irreparable; low morale in addition to decreased productivity levels should be anticipated when dealing with workplace harassment issues.
Our Workplace Harassment training session is designed to give business owners and employees the information they need to stop harassment from happening in their workplace. With our help, participants can gain essential solutions that will reduce or even eliminate any traces of inappropriate behaviour for a safe and productive work environment.
The workplace should be a safe environment, free from all forms of violence and harassment. This training session is designed to equip employees with the knowledge they need to react quickly in times of trouble – allowing them the power and confidence to address issues before they escalate. By providing participants with this aptitude, we’ll ensure that everybody has their voice heard if confronted by such pernicious behaviour; ultimately ensuring problems can be solved swiftly and effectively for everyone’s benefit without any further disruption or distress.

What If It Is Happening to Someone Else?
As a manager, it can be challenging to know how best to proceed when you think or are aware of harassment occurring in the workplace but no complaint has been filed. In this presentation, we’ll explore possible paths forward and ways of resolving difficult scenarios ethically.
Someone Has Filed a Complaint Against Me!
Facing a daunting situation can be overwhelming, but don’t panic! During this session we’ll cover the proper steps to take in order to effectively handle any complaint presented against you.
Addressing a Complaint
Proactivity is essential, but employers will inevitably encounter a harassment complaint at some stage. To ensure fair and effective handling of these situations, let’s explore the four core components for dealing with such an issue.
Handling False Complaints
When dealing with suspected false harassment claims, it’s critical to be mindful of how you proceed. This session will provide insight into navigating these delicate scenarios and dispel any uncertainty surrounding best practices.
Claimants can now explore the option of utilising mediation as an alternative to filing a complaint. Get ready for an in-depth discussion on how this process works, when it is and isn’t appropriate, culminating with a hands-on role playing experience!
Investigating a Complaint
As part of this session, we will explore the nuances of effective harassment investigation. We’ll cover when it is necessary for an organisation to initiate proceedings and who should be involved in the process. Additionally, we’ll discuss how organisations can develop processes that ensure fair outcomes are reported without fail.
Making the Decision
In this session, we will explore the pros and cons of deciding who has ultimate authority in resolving customer complaints. We’ll also discuss when it is most beneficial to involve legal counsel as part of the process.
During this session, we will explore multiple paths to resolving a harassment complaint; each tailored specifically for the complainant, respondent and organisation. Let’s discuss how these solutions might look in practice!
After It Is Over
After handling the difficult situation of a work-place harassment complaint, managers and organisations can help encourage employees to return to their daily lives in peace. This session will provide an opportunity for all involved parties discuss how best this transition process can be supported.
After gaining an understanding of the harassment process and all its intricacies, participants can dive right into a hands-on experience by role playing four stages within it: initial consultation with an advisor, formal complaint filing, investigation initiation, then ultimately reaching a decision. Detailed case files are provided to ensure maximum realism – get ready for some true immersion!
Students can look forward to wrapping up the course with both a Q&A session and an action plan, allowing them to make strategies for immediate application of their new knowledge.
