Course Overview

Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, courtesy and respect at work. But unfortunately, it's not always something we can take for granted.
The reality is that many people encounter negative behaviours - like harassment and bullying - that undermine dignity at work.

Left unchecked these can erode people's morale and commitment and have a serious impact on their performance.
