There has been an ever-increasing amount of national attention focusing on the issue of bullying, harassment, and incivility in the workplace. While bullying may not always be detected easily, it leads to employee dissatisfaction, reduced productivity and frequent absences. Organizations must learn how to quickly deal with issues associated with bullying so that escalation into employee illnesses, depression, and possibly violence, is less likely to happen. Strategies and skills are essential to produce a “prevention” atmosphere in the workplace rather than an “intervention” atmosphere. Join us and presenter Anne Schroeder, certified in bullying prevention through Clemson University, for an eye-opening webinar!

This 3-part series launches a new Florida Institute of Government initiative to discuss current workplace concerns and ways to improve employee productivity and promote a safe and balanced work environment. Top experts review state and federal laws, provide real-world examples and case studies, offer findings from current research, and share personal experiences to make these sessions practical, informative, and relevant to everyone working in government.

Note: This series is available as 3 standalone webinars or as a full series.   For more information on the full series, please click here.
