Northwestern 06.10.21 VIRUTAL Containing the Fallout l Restoring the Workplace After the Investigation
Dealing with workplace harassment, be it bullying, sexual or discrimination, has become increasingly challenging and risky for employers to navigate. Social movement activity, enhanced legislative protections and expanded employee entitlements have emboldened those experiencing and observing this misconduct to bring their issues forward. This has resulted in an increasing number of investigations being conducted, and what most organizations don’t prepare for is the destabilizing impact an investigation can have on engagement, morale and workplace culture.
Using interactive case studies to set the context, attendees will:
- Consider the impact of investigations on the workplace
- Examine the complexities of workplace harassment complaints and incidents
- Discuss practical strategies to effectively set conduct expectations within the workplace to proactively mitigate harassment-related risks
- Explore methods to contain the negative impact of investigations on workplace culture and the steps that can be taken post-investigation to restore adverse effects on morale and culture
