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 course!
