Culture starts with YOU – the leaders and management in the organisation. There is no room for Bullying & Harassment in the workplace, and it shouldn't happen under any circumstances.

Our Bullying and Harassment Training Course will help you to learn how to manage your team. We take you through a variety of important steps, such as – identifying, preventing, handling and combating negative behaviour in the workplace.

Why is Bullying & Harassment Training Important?

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The Sex Discrimination Act 1975 protects people from discrimination on the grounds of sex or marital status.

The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act made intentional harassment a criminal offence.

The Protection from Harassment Act made it a criminal offence to pursue conduct that leads to harassment, or fear that violence will be used. If convicted, someone can be sentenced to up to six months in prison or receive a fine of up to £5000.

The Equality Act ensures the workplace is a fair environment for all employees, whilst respecting the protected characteristics of each individual.

The Health & Safety at Work Act ensures that employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all employees when at work.

Benefits to Your Business

Every workplace should be a safe environment, as well as being free from bullying or harassment, so that people are able to work at their highest level.

However, according to YouGov, almost a third of all workers claim that they’ve experienced bullying at work which has adversely affected their performance.

Bullying creates a negative working environment, reduces productivity, and increases staff turnover. On the other hand, harassment is an offence that leads to criminal charges, fines, and lost reputation. You need to ensure that ALL staff are able to spot the signs and know what to do to eradicate it. This course on Bullying & Harassment not only helps people to understand, identify, and tackle the problem, but also equips them with the tools to prevent it from occurring in the first place.
