Maintaining a Professional Work Environment

90 minutes

All workplaces face personnel issues that can have a negative impact on every aspect of business.  While rules, procedures, policies, and codes of conduct attempt to prevent problems by setting clear expectations, no organization is totally free of workforce difficulties.  This workshop addresses conduct that can create a breach or violation of workplace professionalism.  Harassment, bullying, teasing, intimidation, workplace relationships, rumors, confidentiality, silence, violence, and retaliation are examples of topics discussed in a deterrent approach.  Too often we operate in a crisis mode waiting until the problem explodes and are then forced to address the issue.  Dealing with sensitive issues is most effective when it is done in a prevention format, which is the focus of this workshop.
