Preventing Workplace Bullying, Harassment & Discrimination


The Importance of Developing Positive Workplace Behaviours.

Bullying is a big issue and one that can impact every organisation. In fact, workplace bullying, harassment and discrimination is a severe and pervasive problem that plagues workplaces across the globe.

The impact of bullying in the workplace can be detrimental to morale, staff turnover and the financial performance of an organisation. It can have serious consequences for the organisation including fines and criminal charges for offenders and the organisation they work for.

For individuals, the personal costs can include physical and psychological injuries, a loss of enjoyment and satisfaction from work, and in some cases the loss of job and future career opportunities.

For employers the costs can include reduced employee morale and productivity, increased absenteeism and staff turnover, increased workers compensation costs and an overall loss of reputation.

Bullying has no meaningful value in any workplace.

‘Preventing Workplace Bullying, Harassment & Discrimination’ focuses on bullying, what it is, what causes it and how the law defines it. It then looks at the value and importance of developing positive work behaviours and an open and respectful culture that values and celebrates diversity and integrity.
