HR Workshops: Addressing Workplace Bullying - for Managers and Supervisors

1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Workplace bullying is an ever-growing concern for organizations, and is defined as the repeated mistreatment of one or more employees with a malicious mix of humiliation, intimidation and sabotage of performance. Employers have a responsibility to confront and stop workplace bullying because of its impact to both employees and to the company, including increased health issues and related costs, low morale, absenteeism, and reduced productivity.  This workshop provides supervisors and managers with resources and strategies to effectively confront and stop incidents of workplace bullying.  After the workshop, participants should be able to:


  • Define workplace bullying
  • Describe the difference between workplace bullying, illegal discrimination and harassment
  • Provide reasons why it is important to:
    • Address workplace bullying
    • Communicate clear behavioral standards
    • Model behaviors of appropriate workplace conduct
    • Maintain employee accountability
  • Present ways for managers and supervisors to curb or end offensive bullying behavior
