Diversity in the community and in our workplaces is a reality, and employers recognize the need to ensure that all employees have a common expectation for respectful workplace behaviours. All employees and supervisors contribute to respectful workplaces by taking responsibility for their own actions and their effect on others. This workshop covers essential skills in recognizing behaviours that constitute workplace harassment. Participants will also be provided with the tools and knowledge to begin designing relevant policies and complaint resolution processes.
