How to build a respectful culture to tackle inappropriate behaviour at work

Inappropriate behaviour at work is one of the most pressing issues facing leaders today with half of British women having been sexually harassed at work according to a BBC survey. But less than half (40%) of line managers are trained in preventing and addressing inappropriate behaviour and a quarter of UK employees say bullying and harassment is overlooked (CIPD).
Suzanne will draw on her 15 years of HR experience with both large blue chips and entrepreneurial start-ups, as well as from her current role leading a ‘Respect for People’ programme; a three step change process to establishing a respectful workplace culture, to explain:
• why workplace respect is so important
•  growing expectations for improvement, such as the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s guide to handling workplace sexual harassment
• the new ‘era of honesty’– why today’s culture must be transparent and accountable, driven top down
You will leave this webinar understanding the benefits of a respectful workplace, including improved employee engagement and, importantly, how to lead the change to build a respectful culture in your organisation.
