Workplace bullying is costly: both to the individuals being bullied, and to your organisation, on a number of levels.
If you have bullying issues in your workplace, you’ll know how challenging it is. Things don’t run smoothly. There is rampant absenteeism or presenteeism, where people are present, but distracted and distressed. Staff don’t achieve work targets. They just don’t feel safe. Sometimes, there’s even open conflict. You are losing money because good people are walking out the door, and you are continually reimagining your business to accommodate the problem. On top of it all, you know that you also have a legal and ethical responsibility to provide a safe work environment.
In short, the problem needs managing, but managing it is a challenge all on its own. Maybe you don’t have the time or skills to handle the problem, or maybe you don’t have an appropriate system in place that will resolve it effectively.
That is where we can help.
At Working Well Together, we specialise in preventing and managing workplace bullying, through our Workplace Bullying Support Program, workplace cultural audits, training and systems development.
