About the Course

Workplace bullying and harassment cause serious harm to worker health and organisations. Bullying is estimated to cost up to $36 billion annually in Australia. At a personal level, workers experience a range of psychological and physical health problems after they are bullied. There is a significant relationship between workplace bullying and a range of psychological health and well-being outcomes (anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, strain, psychosomatic symptoms, burnout, and physical health complaints). It is also associated with increased intention to leave and absenteeism, and decreased job satisfaction and commitment.

This course highlights the prevalence and consequences of bullying and harassment in the workplace, and its great cost to affected individuals, teams and organisations. Bullying and harassment are defined, and distinguished from workplace discrimination.

The various types of common bullying and harassment behaviours are examined, and these are contrasted to performance management/appraisal feedback and certain other behaviours, which are not bullying or harassment. The cycle of bullying is discussed, as well as its impact on individuals, teams, managers and organisations.

Case studies are provided in bullying and harassment – these highlight the types of unacceptable behaviours that can occur, the significant resultant costs, and appropriate responses that should have occurred.

The course then highlights the responsibilities of HR and supervisors/managers to deal with bullying and harassment in a timely, effective way, as well as the options available to them to address these behaviours.

Finally, the course examines the need to ‘teach people how to treat you’. Affected employees are strongly advised to practice assertiveness, know available options, and implement preventative measures so that the prevalence of bullying and harassment are minimised.

Who Will Benefit

This course will be of special benefit to HR managers and staff, who need to deal with the effects and consequences of workplace bullying, and provide staff training in this critical area when required.

It will also benefit managers and supervisors, in terms of identifying the signs, symptoms and consequences of bullying and harassment, and options for dealing with these behaviours.

It can further be very helpful to any staff who have experienced bullying or harassment – to inform them and empower them to take positive action, rather than allowing these behaviours to continue.

Testimonials

This was an important course for our supervisors, many of whom would not have recognised the prevalence of bullying and harassment in our workplace. They now know that they have a responsibility to address it in a timely, effective manne.

It has given me clear guidelines for identifying bullying and harassment in my team and our workplace, and what to do when it occurs.

I had no idea that bullying was so prevalent. Even though I have experienced it and seen it happen often enough, I had not identified those behaviours as bullying and harassment. Now I know what I need to do next time it happens.
