It is inherent in the ways individuals in the workplace interact that a certain amount of ‘banter’ and even more ‘robust’ exchanges are a natural part of workplace lore. Occasionally this gets out of hand and causes harm where none was intended. On the other hand, bullying does occur, it is a common phenomenon and one which employers have to take very seriously. One way to avoid or at least minimise the risk in both cases is to make bullying and harassment open topics of conversation in organisations. This seminar style day is designed to raise awareness and suggest ways that staff can help reduce the incidence of bullying – real and perceived – and what to do if they think a colleague needs help or support.
