Event description

Description

Join us with the CIPD chair, Dr. Frances McGregor of the University of Huddersfield to explore this important topic. Doors open from 6pm with food and a 6:15pm start.


Event Description

For the last century research which considered human behaviour in the workplace has added understanding and value to organisations and the workers themselves. Since 1990, there has been a specific focus on workplace bullying when parallels were drawn between playground bullying and bullying behaviours in the workplace.

From this time, definitions have effectively considered workplace bullying occurs when a worker is subject to mistreatment by another worker that is persistent, regular and causes harm.

This session will explore if this is still relevant for the contemporary workplace and what role the organisation plays in this. We will also take a critical look at HR’s role and whether we are as objective, fair-minded and pragmatic as we intend to be.

Objectives:

  • To consider workplace bullying from perspectives of the bullied and the bullies and how the organisation and HR plays a part in this.

Expected outcomes:

  • This session intends to raise awareness of HR practitioners and people managers of the complex nature of workplace bullying, of resolution strategies and of fairness for all.

Who would benefit from attending?:

  • HR professionals, people managers
