Workplace Harassment is always a serious matter within the workplace and the single harassment of an employee can create various ripples all across the company. For the employees directly experiencing it, it can create various psychological problems such as traumas and even depression, all of which can definitely hamper their ability to work or even stay in your company. The gravity of this situation is such that it can become very painful for all involved: supervisors may find that their team has lost all cohesion, and can therefore result to a loss in productivity and profit. In fact, some of these cases can even spread across various social media platforms, creating needless controversy for the company and alienating both employees and customers. As such, it is very important for employees to learn how to deal with workplace harassment in their various forms, so that they may be made aware of the proper channels and the right techniques with which to help comfort others who may end up experiencing it. Our training course will define what workplace harassment is, determine various instances that people may or may not be aware of, how to use the necessary channels, anger management and various others that will ultimately help them become more resilient and aware of what to do in the workplace.
Harassment is never a laughing matter and is often a persistent problem within companies. It has ruined lives and companies alike, and has resulted in teams being disbanded, lost productivity and other predictable effects. Our commitment to the idea of helping create quality employees has led us to create a training course that will allow participants to understand the nuances of workplace harassment and how to deal with them using various coping techniques and mechanisms, and even a taste of the psychological studies behind these cases. What’s more is that we also discuss these mechanisms in an interactive way, allowing students to accurately rehearse and communicate with one another to see for themselves the effectiveness of our methods. We also allow for the integration of this course into a customised training session, which will allow you to focus on more specific needs. If you need any further information on the matter, please contact us. We would be glad to help.
The definition of workplace harassment
Workplace harassment is a rather complex subject with a lot of undertones and implications, and as such it is rather necessary that we define workplace harassment and the various instances that take place in such contexts. In the process, we will talk about the power structures and dynamics of abuse, what other factors influence the context that makes workplace harassment more conducive and other such areas. Being able to know about this will allow all employees to understand that the nature of harassment is not just as simple as imagining a workplace bully, or having people yell at one another. In general, this will allow them to figure out workplace harassment as soon as it takes place, before all is too late.
The proper channels for dealing with such matters
Companies often have certain mechanisms which allow for either disciplinary, legal or psychological action, and workplace harassment can sometimes require all three: for the disciplinary actions, panels may be established with strict adherence to due process, and grievances must be filed in a formal, accurate manner. In addition, the panelists themselves must be chosen among colleagues, and must be authoritative as they tend to be the ones to mediate the conflict of two or more employees who refuse to see each other eye to eye. Lastly, the aim is to reach for the fairest outcome possible, with the intent of reprimanding or punishing the offenders once they have been found guilty. For legal actions, it is necessary for employees to know their rights, and even, to know what actually constitutes workplace harassment, as they may find out, to their shame, that some actions, while harmful to an extent, cannot be considered harassment altogether. Lastly, for psychological action, employees have to have access to at least basic psychological knowledge to provide coping techniques for people who are experiencing actual harassment.
The first signs of workplace harassment
Most people tend to hide their emotions from others, and understandably so: they do not want their loved ones to worry. In fact, this tendency can even be doubled across companies because of the idea that professionalism must be maintained at all times, even in situations as critical as workplace harassment. However, because of the need to cover up their own emotions, it can end up creating various psychological problems, such as being suicidal, falling into depression and various other things that ultimately serve to the detriment of the employee concerned. Failing to address this often results in more far-reaching consequences both for companies and employees alike. As such, participants must be able to work together to maintain a conducive work environment by knowing about the first possible signs of workplace harassment, usually in the way a fellow colleague asks, before it becomes far too late.
Connected with knowing the first signs of workplace harassment is the knowledge of coping techniques. Coping isn’t just about dealing with others, coping can be about ourselves. Proper communication, breathing exercises, changes in lifestyle and even certain self-talk techniques can help employees overcome the situations from within their respective psychological bubbles. In fact, knowledge of these procedures will effectively allow for more resilient employees who are capable of keeping their cool despite constant pressure. We show participants some new ways to cope with some older time-tested strategies also.
There is a marked need for employees to learn how to control their emotions, more importantly when things are not going as they should be. This is because emotions, especially negative ones like anger, can prevent all logical thought and restrain them from doing their proper tasks as employees. Even worse still, anger can often become a precursor to workplace violence, which, as we have all established, is unneeded and should be dealt with decisively. This training course will therefore also take the time to deal with anger before it becomes an actual conflict, along with various other instances which can in fact trigger anger.
