Workplace Awareness Training

 

The Workplace Awareness Training is an effective means of educating managers or employees who may have engaged in inappropriate conduct in contravention of workplace policy and/or human rights law. The goal of the training is to provide practical information, and the necessary tools to establish and maintain harmonious working relationships. Accordingly, undertaking this kind of training is viewed positively as a proactive, rather than a punitive step.

This one-on-one training program is intended for managers or employees and is three hours long; it focuses primarily on workplace discrimination, harassment and bullying issues, i.e. making clear what conduct is acceptable and what is unacceptable in the workplace.

The following is a general description of the Workplace Awareness Training session:

  • to ensure that the participant has a comprehensive understanding as to what constitutes harassment, and the impact that harassment has on other employees;
  • to address the participant’s personal belief system about, for example, persons of different gender in the workplace and any other subjects which could elicit a negative response in the workplace (e.g. inappropriate gender-based jokes or comments);
  • to develop an understanding as to how employee perceptions, affect management authority, and how managers must fulfill behavioral role models;
  • to provide the participant with guidelines for conduct in the workplace in order to promote a harmonious work environment;
  • to impart to the participant the serious nature and ramifications of harassment, bullying and other discriminatory conduct;
  • to enhance the participant’s ability to effectively and professionally communicate with colleagues;
  • to provide the participant with successful techniques to enhance his role as a manager within the organization; and
  • to establish effective strategies and processes to resolve workplace conflict.

Following the session, we will issue a written report that will include:

  • a description of the participant’s willingness to participate in the awareness session;
  • an assessment of the impact of the program on the participant and willingness to adopt alternative workplace conduct;
  • a determination of the participant’s understanding as to why certain behaviour may result in complaints; and
  • recommendations (if necessary) for further intervention, including subsequent coaching with the participant.
