Description

Relevant and practical advice.

Workplace bullying is a major problem in New Zealand. It can lead to a staggering loss of productivity, high staff turnover, employment litigation, and health and safety prosecution. Even minor bullying can cost a company thousands in lost productivity.

Some workplaces accept bullying as part of the job. However, the Employment Relations Authority has clearly ruled that workplaces must take active steps to address bullying. Bullying is a workplace ‘hazard’, which employers must eliminate or minimise for legal compliance.

In this webinar, you will learn why it is important to address workplace bullying, including the legal implications. This webinar will empower managers to take action where in the past they may have been unsure how to act.

In particular, find out:

  •  Effects of bullying on individuals and organisations
  •  What behaviour constitutes bullying
  •  Factors that increase potential for bullying
  •  How to prevent workplace bullying
  •  Investigating bullying complaints
  •  How to address bullying behaviours
