Are instances of disrespect, or perceived disrespect, damaging your workplace culture? 

Are you unsure if/how you can respond to situations like these if you're a part of them, witness them, or simply hear about them?

This course looks at the roles and responsibilities of all people in the workplace to build a happy, safe and productive environment.

Because of this, we strongly recommend that the whole team take this course together initially, and ensure new hires take this course as early in employment as possible, to ensure good habits are formed before bad ones set the foundation of their future with your company.

At Mediation Services we believe that every workplace needs Respectful Workplace training for their leaders and also their staff as a whole.

Most people already know that a working environment needs to be supported by respectful behaviour if it is to remain efficient and productive. Many workplaces have respectful workplace polices that are designed to protect all employees from hostile and harassing behaviour. Instituting a policy is merely the first step in creating a healthy work environment. A policy alone does not prevent employees from experiencing behaviours that range from disrespectful to threatening.    

Workplace harassment is costly. The major cost is the ongoing loss of creativity and productivity that occur when employees stop enjoying their work and mistrust permeates the environment. In many cases, the more tangible costs associated with formal grievance and investigation processes are a fraction of the larger cost to the organization. The informal costs leading up to the formal processes and the aftermath are often very debilitating to the organization. 

We know that it is tough to find the correct time to offer training to a large work group.  It can be challenging or even impossible.  We have seen many clients go through this challenge over the past few years so decided it was time to create a Respectful Workplace Webinar.   We are working with three of our professional and knowledgeable Conflict Resolution Facilitators, Janet Schmidt, Tanya Clarke-Marinelli and Paul Kruse, to create this one-day webinar to help employers train their staff about How to Build a Respectful Workplace. 

This module based webinar allows your employees to complete the training on their free time.  They can start and stop as often they need to.  The webinar combines teaching videos, presentations, worksheets to work through, and the chance for your employee to look at real situations they have encountered or are still encountering in their workplace.  This course will provide participants with an opportunity to explore how to build respectful workplaces.  It is designed to be highly interactive combining both theory and practice. 

The participants will:

  • Explore experiences of disrespect; 
  • Learn how to effectively respond and recover as sourcetarget, and observer of disrespect in the workplace;  
  • Gain insight into the person in authority’s responsibility in maintaining a respectful workplace; 

Please reach out to us if you would like to talk more about this webinar and how it can benefit your entire workplace.
