Schoolyard Bully Grows Up: Identifying and Addressing Workplace Bullying
Schoolyard Bully Grows Up: Identifying and Addressing Workplace Bullying

As businesses transition back to the office, employers are confronted with a unique scenario: employees seeing one another again in-person, sometimes for the first time in over two years.  With this comes a period of acclimation for the workforce.  Co-workers must adjust to being in close proximity with one another. This adjustment comes at the same time that our society reaches peak levels of polarization on important social, economic and legal issues, which employees do not leave at the door when they clock in.

To help businesses soften this transition for their workforces, Connell Foley provides practical training for employees on:

  1. Implicit bias and its impact on workplace behavior;
  2. Bullying and its impact on workplace behavior and productivity;
  3. Identifying when bullying becomes illegal harassment and/or discrimination;
  4. Sample scenarios demonstrating how these concepts are related and how they may present in the workplace; and
  5. Potential recourses and responses for employees and supervisors. 

We can tailor our one-hour training program to address the different needs of executives, supervisor-level personnel, non-supervisor-level personnel, HR professionals or any other group(s) within your workforce.    

Please reach out if you would like to learn more about this training opportunity, or any of the other training programs that we can provide on behalf of your business.
