What Are the Benefits of Training Employees on Bullying and Harassment?
Bullying and harassment is a health and safety hazard. The reason being that being bullied and/or harassed increases an employee’s stress levels, which has an impact on their physical and mental health.
Bullying and harassment at work:
- Involve abuse of power
- Are protracted over time (this is the case, particularly for bullying)
- Involve actions and behaviors that can cause the victim harm
Employees who are the target of bullying and harassment, often suffer from traumatic stress and this, in turn, can cause conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Digestive disorders
- Lowering of the body’s immune defenses
The consequences, for a company where bullying and harassment go unchallenged, include:
- Demotivated employees
- High absence levels due to sickness
- High staff turnover
- Low productivity
- Low customer satisfaction
- More accidents or mistakes
In addition, in a company that tolerates harassment and bullying, the whole workforce can be affected as the atmosphere in the company will be tense. So, harassment and bullying do not just affect the people being directly targeted but the workforce as a whole.
There are also legal and reputation issues that a company needs to consider. Bullying and harassment can be legally challenged, which has a cost in terms of time and finances for an organization. If then these issues become public, the reputation of the company can be tarnished.
So, how do you address and prevent bullying and harassment in the workplace?
Training your staff is part of the answer. It is imperative that staff are aware of what bullying and harassment are, how to address these behaviors (including being aware of the company’s policy on the matter) and that they will not be tolerated.
Our bullying and harassment in the workplace training course materials aim specifically at helping your employees become aware of bullying and harassment, the issues involved, and how to address them.
Why Should You, as a Trainer, Offer Workshops on Bullying & Harassment at Work?
If you are a freelance or corporate trainer, having equality and diversity courses to offer as part of your portfolio is always a good idea.
Equality and diversity topics are always relevant. This is the case even more so now, as companies understand more and more the importance of supporting their workforce by creating a welcoming and accepting work environment.
