Workplace Bullying:  What Can You Do?

Workplace bullying, mobbing, and outright nastiness are plaguing the modern workplace and directly contribute to losses, both in human talent and in revenue. Some academics estimate that the direct effect of one bully can result in the loss of millions of dollars to an organization. Furthermore, with the inclusion of the Millennial generation into the workforce, a demographic noted for their intolerance of workplace toxicity, employee turnover is becoming an epidemic. So how do we deal with these individuals? Is there a way to screen these people out in job interviews? The answer is: probably not. Oftentimes, the workplace bully is rewarded for their poor behaviour and these kinds of individuals can climb the ladder to land in positions of power that, in turn, cause much more damage to an organization.

Anxiety, stress, and depression are rampant in toxic work environments, and we would like to educate you on how to detect the patterns that lead up to heightened absenteeism in your employees, higher rates of extended leave, and high turnover rates. Remember, every time you lose someone who has learned their position, you lose productivity, time, and money.

This HR training seminar will offer:

  1. How to know the difference between a bully and a 'hard ass' boss.
  2. The different kinds of workplace bully: 'the yeller', 'the passive aggressive high school drama queen', 'the sociopath', and how to deal with each of these personalities.
  3. The ethical and legal ramifications of dealing with workplace bullying.
  4. How to manage bullies in the workplace and when and how to cut ties.

This seminar is aimed at: Managers, Directors, and Senior Administration
