Respect in the workplace

This workshop for team members focuses on understanding how people experience workplace discrimination, bullying, harassment and sexual harassment. It provides practical support and resolution strategies including self-management and bystander strategies and the organisation’s escalation and resolution processes.  The workshop explores the role all employees must play in the prevention and reporting of incidents in their workplace.

Using our signature Workplace Reality Theatre training method, and drawing on industry and sector specific evidence, participants are provided an opportunity to deepen their insight into what constitutes harmful conduct, and strategies to respond to issues if they occur.
