Despite many organisations having policies and providing training on harassment at work an unacceptable level of incidents still take place. If what we have been doing so far is not working then employers need to consider a more pro-active approach including bystander training.

These (x3 50 minute sessions, 10:00-13:00) sessions will:

  • Refresh memories on an employer's duty to prevent harassment under the Equality Act 2010 and recent guidance issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission
  • provide guidance on the action that can be taken to react/intervene both “in the moment” and by way of follow up in relation to inappropriate behaviours
  • Respond appropriately to claims or concerns raised by employees

Agenda/Programme

Content includes:

  • The steps an employer must take to convince an ET that they have done enough to prevent harassment [Using practical examples by way of illustration]
  • Details of the “5 Ds” strategies that can be applied when a bystander [e.g. manager ] is faced with a real life scenario
  • Deal with push back from perpetrators: “it’s not me, it’s them”
  • Explore ways to rebuild relationships, promote inclusion and secure talent retention
