Dignity at Work Training

Managers posing for picture

In recent years, there appears to have been a surge in anti-bullying policies, internal advisors and bullying surveys in organisations. Yet the overall prevalence of perceived bullying and harassment remains at an all-time high in UK. A recent policy discussion paper published by acas (www.acas.org.uk) indicates that the problem of bullying and ill treatment is ever growing in Britain. Even politicians seem to have joined in the debate with the home secretary recently accusing the fire service of having a bullying culture !

McKenzie has worked with a large number of organisations in this area. Whilst of course, all organisations are different, our experience  indicates that problems relating to dignity at work can often be related to:

  • Staff objecting to what is legitimate performance management action
  • Old fashioned, aggressive or autocratic management styles 
  • Demands of an organisation - including change and restructuring
  • Harassment from the public e.g. from customers
  • Inappropriate workplace behaviour, language or actions from all levels of employees 

McKenzie can work with you to develop robust initiatives to reduce both the perception and incidence of bullying and harassment. This includes the design of bespoke, interactive and engaging training designed to address all of the above points.

We also provide confidential one to one Dignity at Work coaching which can be especially useful where an issue relates to a specific individual in your organisation. Please contact us to find out more about how we could work with you in this area.  

Equality Impact Assessment Training:

Used to assess the impact your policies and activities have on different sections of society. An Equality Analysis (formally known as an Equality Impact Assessment) is an essential tool for both identifying equality issues and for deciding how to further develop your organisations approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

McKenzie has worked in this area since the original introduction of Equality Impact Assessment tools in 2001. We provide training, coaching and development and we also have comprehensive experience of completing Equality Analysis / Assessments on behalf of our partner organisations.
