Anti-Bullying and Harassment:
Respectful Workplace Training
Our group sensitivity training about harassment and bullying is second to none. Why? It encapsulates what you need to know about the legislation, self-assessment exercises, coping mechanisms, and, most importantly, the facilitator's personal stories of how she dealt with workplace bullying and harassment.
Whether your workplace is currently experiencing incidents of bullying and harassment or you want to be proactive, you’ll find our approach refreshing and original.
Diversity at Work’s anti-harassment and anti-bullying training goes beyond the standard content, focusing primarily on legislation. We believe that taking personal responsibility is an essential component of ending workplace bullying and harassment, and this is emphasized throughout the workshop.
Through self-reflection/assessment exercises, participants will learn about different forms of bullying and be asked to take an inventory of the tactics they tend to use or witness. This is a powerful exercise as often, and some participants do not realize they may be contributing to a toxic environment in the workplace. The section also introduces personal responsibility related to taking action when employees witness bullying and harassment.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
How to identify different types of bullying and harassment.
The characteristics of eight different kinds of bullies.
The differences between bullying and harassment.
What to do if you witness bullying or are a victim.
Coping skills for those who are bullied in the workplace.
The workshop ends with a personal and organizational action plan for creating a respectful and inclusive workplace. A brainstorming session with participants will provide suggestions for management to create a respectful workplace free from bullying and harassment.
This workshop is approximately 3.5 hours and includes individual and group exercises.

We were eager to bring back in-person training, and Evelina was recommended. Evelina has delivered three c-65/Respectful workplace training sessions thus far, and we look forward to inviting Evelina back. Workplace #bullying #harassment is not an easy topic to deliver. Participants were highly engaged in the story-telling, discussions and group work and left understanding their roles and responsibilities around monitoring their behaviour and not being bystanders. Evelina was easy to work with and sought our input into the training. Evelina delivered a very moving, memorable training, reflecting on her experiences of being bullied in the workplace and sharing the stories of others. Evelina provided the training in such a way that participants walked away with more than having learned about legislation, strategies, and process. #teambuilding
