Workplace bullying and discrimination can greatly affect the lives of those affected by these and managers have a responsibility to prevent and end such incidents. The effects can range from psychological distress and decreased productivity from the victim to legal ramifications for the company.

Given today’s diverse workplaces, in which people from varied backgrounds work together, managers face a challenge in ensuring mutual understanding of different perspectives, needs, and experiences. Employees’ attitudes towards the “other” shape their perceptions and interactions and greatly affect the team culture and working atmosphere.

It is vital that managers are aware of the difference between bullying and harassment and understand their responsibilities regarding each. Furthermore, they must have the skills not just to prevent such instances but to actively build an inclusive team culture and working environment in which all employees feel secure and valued. Therefore, strong communication and conflict de-escalation skills should be paired with an understanding of employees’ perceptions of themselves and their colleagues.

Through this course, participants will develop their understanding of managers’ responsibilities through case studies and best practice examples regarding bullying and discrimination. Participants will also develop strategies for conflict de-escalation that they can use alongside teambuilding skills to ensure a sustainable, healthy and inclusive work environment that benefits all employees.
