Webinar: Reduce business risk, manage workplace harassment & set boundaries

Protect business reputation, financial position and employee wellbeing by taking the first step to improving workplace boundaries

Protect business reputation, financial position and employee wellbeing by taking the first step to improving workplace boundaries

About this Event

More Australian businesses are finding themselves up against bullying and harassment claims.

It’s a serious situation that will cost companies $25,000 for each claim they face, and that’s not including severe reputational damage, and a workplace culture no employee wants to join.

Remote working hasn’t eased this – in fact, it’s made it harder to judge and enforce appropriate workplace behaviour. There’s no question that many businesses, no matter their intention, aren’t meeting the standards they need to.

Better awareness, education and action has the power to save your business.

The Reducing Workplace Harassment & Setting Boundaries webinar will help you on your way to reduce workplace bullying/harassment and reduce the associated business and employee risks. We will discuss setting appropriate professional boundaries, as well as the steps that you need to take to follow and enforce behaviours that will protect your organisations financial and reputational integrity.

What can you expect?

Attendees of this webinar can expect to leave with the skills and understanding to:

  • Promote positive workplace cultures and build authentic relationships between colleagues, leaders, teams
  • Be part of positive workplace cultures and be an advocate for change
  • Read the boundaries of others, set your own boundaries, and clearly express your boundaries to others
  • Deal with complex situations and conversations, particularly around cultural or sexual harassment and bullying
  • Have awareness that will contribute to litigation-free workplaces

The session will include analysing real-life scenarios to create awareness of situations, and allow attendees to practice acting with informed action instead of a reflex response. You are welcome to bring examples of your own work-orientated experiences to share with the group, if you feel comfortable to do so.
