iHR Australia Custodians of Culture: Anti Discrimination and Bullying Training for Managers
Toxic workplace cultures are preventable
72% of employees reported to have quit their organisations as it was toxic, and 51% mentioned that they plan on quitting (at some stage) for the same reason (2022 Toxic Work Environment Report).
If unlawful behaviours are one of the main reasons people quit, then what can leaders do to prevent this?
“We cannot overlook the fact that there is a systemic issue within a department or team when it comes to giving feedback on behaviour or wider performance. It is just not in the DNA of the workplace culture (or within managers) to handle complaints or have difficult conversations in an honest light.”
Stephen Bell, our Managing Director, and Facilitator
However, organisation culture changes starts at the top, and undertaking the right leadership training can move the needle on prevention.
What makes our training stand out?
Most bullying, harassment and discrimination programs out there focus on recognising the toxic behaviours, understanding the laws, and implementing potential prevention strategies. Our flagship program ‘Custodians of Culture’ not only covers those key aspects, but also expands on different perspectives to foster a healthy culture.
Using our signature Workplace Reality Theatre training method, we draw on industry and sector-specific case studies, allowing participants to respond in real-time to scenarios played out by professional actors. Participants receive feedback from our expert facilitator on how to assess issues appropriately.
