Seminar offers advice on tackling workplace bullying

Advice for tackling bullying in the workplace will be provided at a forthcoming three-hour seminar run by learning company Steps Drama.

The organisers say 'Creating a Culture of Respect' will highlight effective initiatives for tackling bullying and harassment in the workplace, and will use interactive drama-based scenarios to show how organisations can create an anti-bullying ethos by changing embedded negative behaviour.

The event, with presentations from John McCarthy and the Co-op, is aimed at key business figures and organisational developers.

"Workplace bullying can have a devastating impact on the morale, effectiveness and well-being of individuals and on the performance of the organisation," said Simon Thomson, Account Director at Steps Drama, who will co-lead the seminar.

"We're aiming to help people to develop workable policies on bullying and to make the change from a culture where bullying is covertly accepted to one where it isn't tolerated."

Amanda Jones, head of diversity at the Co-operative Group, said: "Bullying and harassment are never appropriate and organisations must raise awareness of the need to treat others with respect and show consideration for their feelings. This is important not only from an ethical position but also from a business standpoint. By creating a great environment for people to work in, you create a great environment for your customers."

'Creating a Culture of Respect' is priced at £100 + VAT. It will run from 11.00am - 2.00pm on Tuesday 10 October 2006 at The Lowry, Salford, and on Wednesday 11 October 2006 at London City Hall.
