Lack of civility in the American workplace is increasing at a epic rate.

According to a recent study published by Workplace Bullying Institute, approximately 60 million American workers have witnessed or been the victims of workplace bullying.  The need to address the issue  is critical – whether your business is a start-up or an established business.

Key efforts you can take in your business, or for your teams include:

  • Creating a workplace civility policy
  • Updating your existing workplace bullying policy
  • Include workplace civility training to your New Hire Onboarding process
  • Add workplace civility training to your learning catalog of offerings
  • Add civility training to your annual “compliance training” process.  (that includes workplace violence, harassment, and safety courses).
  • Set the tone and expectations within your individual workgroups
  • Require annual compliance reviews – like those of safety, violence, and harassment.
  • Track, measure and report the state of civility in your organization

Has your team reached a point where you need civility training?  Hobson Training presents a powerful course that helps businesses and teams address the issues of workplace civility and worker respect.
