Neutralizing Harassment – How to Promote the Proactive Personal Response


Harassment at the workplace is a fact one has to live with. It is not something that can be done away or wished away. It is almost integral to the workplace, although an undesirable one. One cannot stop harassment, but there are ways by which to handle and neutralize its impact.

The core problem with dealing with harassment begins with the fact that it is not very easy to detect or recognize. It can be very subtle and silent. Many employees are clueless about what constitutes harassment, because of which they feel awkward to speak up or protest when someone does something inappropriate.

Despite being a usually simmering problem, it can lead to a host of unwanted outcomes such as lowered employee morale, increased turnover, erosion in motivation, absenteeism, and so on.

This webinar is for those who feel that more can be done to counter harassment. It is aimed at those employees who feel they could do that bit extra to support the organization when harassment takes place and improve the environment at the workplace and the productivity.

Doing this is very important because an organization that is free from harassment, bullying and discrimination is a positive one. This webinar will show how to recognize the visual, physical and verbal manifestations of workplace harassment. It will show how to control the situation in a stress-free manner, while at the same time implementing the company’s policy on harassment.

This webinar will cover the following areas:

  • Understand the key concepts around harassment and why it is important to promote awareness in your workplace
  • Discover who is affected by harassment and what your organization needs to do to combat harassment
  • Utilize a variety of techniques to decrease and discourage harassment in its ‘early’ stages
  • Promote the Proactive Personal Response within your teams to promote a harassment-free environment.

Human Resources Professionals, Health and Safety Reps, Union Reps, Supervisors, Manager, Directors (Team Leads) and Executive Directors Not-For-Profit are some of the personnel that will benefit from this webinar.
