Western NY How HR Professionals Can Foster a Culture of Civility in the Workplace

Join us! The WNY NHRA is excited to announce our March Virtual Event:

How HR Professionals Can Foster a Culture of Civility in the Workplace

HR professionals have been tacking workplace misconduct including harassment, discrimination, bullying, and lack of inclusion for years. But rather than addressing each of these workplace issues independently, and often after they have happened, HR professionals need to approach these issues as symptoms of a bigger problem. In fact, 93% of Americans feel that “civility” in today’s society is problematic. A Harvard Business School study of more than 60,000 employees estimated the cost of workplace incivility runs into the millions. By creating an intentional culture of civility, HR professionals can help prevent and mitigate workplace misconduct. As you might imagine, for this culture of civility to work, it must be practiced from top leaders down to front-line employees.

This training will cover the following:

  • How respect, diversity and inclusion foster a more civil workplace
  • What a culture of civility looks like
  • The impact of incivility
  • How to address bullying in the workplace
  • Specific actions HR professionals can take to promote a culture of civility
