HRPA Annual Conference

Traditional respect training isn’t working. Despite widespread anti-harassment training, workplace harassment continues to be a significant issue in Canadian workplaces. However, one emerging, research-supported strategy has the potential to transform workplaces: bystander intervention. Bystander intervention starts from the premise that everyone has a role to play in reducing harassment. Employees are educated not from the perspective of being considered potential perpetrators (as in traditional training), but rather as allies and advocates for a respectful, inclusive workplace. Effective training is essential, but a successful bystander intervention also requires a strong roll-out strategy, follow-up assessments and feedback.  This interactive and informative session, led by Brian Gottheil, a well-respected workplace harassment investigator and trainer, will give you the tools to implement a successful, research-informed, and potentially transformative bystander anti-harassment strategy.
