Niagara Street Consulting has you covered when it comes to management training.

harassment-bullying-training-for-managersSuccessful businesses around the world rely on highly dedicated management staff in order to keep the wheels greased and turning. The more successful an organization gets, the larger it grows – and the more managers you need to keep things running smoothly. This is why it’s so important to ensure your management team get the right type of training they need to ensure your employees are engaged and productive.

Your managers may be employees that have been promoted from within or from outside hires, but no one is born as a competent manager – they need specific coaching. One of the most important forms of this is anti-harassment training for managers, which provides ways for them to identify different forms of negative behavior and how to handle it.

Employers in Ontario are held to a very high standard when it comes to forms of harassment and bullying. Amendments to the Occupational Health & Safety Act are increasing employer obligations with respect to workplace harassment programs, creating additional duties of employers to protect workers from workplace harassment, and ensuring that incidents are appropriately investigated with the results communicated to complainants and alleged harassers.

Providing anti-harassment or anti-bullying training for managers is part of that process; it’s crucial, especially if these workplace standards are ignored, this could expose a company to fines and penalties – or even criminal lawsuits.

If you haven’t instituted anti-harassment training for your managers, it’s advisable to do so.
