Event Sponsor


A respectful workplace is more productive, less stressful, and more likely to recruit and retain the best candidates. This presentation will provide concrete ways to hone communication and de-escalation skills to assist human resource professionals in their everyday interactions with senior leaders, managers, and staff. We'll also review relevant legislation, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act and, of course, the Human Rights Code.

Attendees will learn concrete ways to improve communication and de-escalation skills to enhance workplace relationships and avoid harassment/bullying. Enhanced communication skills will improve performance management discussions, reduce workplace harassment complaints, and increase professionalism for HR practitioners and their strategic business partners.
