Creating Respectful and Inclusive Workplaces (Call for details)

Bullying and harassment in the workplace can take many forms including verbal aggression, personal attacks, and other intimidating or humiliating behaviours. When individuals feel that they cannot be themselves at work, or are the target of bullying behaviours, they do not engage fully as part of the team. If workplace bullying and harassment is not addressed, it can lead to lost productivity, elevated stress and anxiety, depression, high absenteeism, and increased turnover.

Even though WorkSafe BC's new occupation health and safety policies help define workplace bullying and harassment, and explain the duties of employers, supervisors, and workers, diversity and inclusion is a complex topic and employees may need more exploration to examine their own views and discuss strategies to overcome bullying and harassment as a team. 

This important workshop allows employees to gain clarity around workplace bullying and harassment issues including:

  • Exploring workplace attitudes & behaviours;
  • The effects of bullying and harassment;
  • How we respond to negative behaviours;
  • What bullying ‘is’ and ‘isn’t’;
  • *Workplace behaviour policy; and
  • **Courageous Conversations.

* Existing workplace bullying and harassment policies for the organization will be incorporated into this workshop. ** Workshop participants will also be encouraged to role-play ‘real-life’ scenarios from their workplace.

Is there really such a thing as ‘time management', or is ‘Time’ just some uncontrollable beast that keeps on marching while we get left behind? These days it seems like everyone must do more, with fewer resources. We have great plans that we’d like to get started (and eventually complete), but the day-to-day demands seem to keep those valuable projects in the corner of our desk. So how do we move forward, get the job done, manage the details, and still have a life?

  • The neuroscience behind the effects of stress and decision making;
  • Valuable tools and tips that you can immediately use to tame your mounting workload;

Work can be stressful. It takes up a good portion of our life, and if it happens to be a source of anxiety, that stress can take a terrible toll on both our mental and physical health. Workers today are interrupted at least seven times an hour, distracted up to 2.1 hours a day, and are expected to do increasingly more with fewer resources. We can’t completely eliminate stress in the workplace (nor would we want to), but could change how we think about stress allow us to be more effective overall?
