Workplace Restoration: Emerging Psychological Health & Safety Practices
In our role as leaders and managers, we know that the result of an investigation, complaint or other difficult incident can impact psychological health and safety for complainants, respondents and others. If you haven’t experienced these issues yet, you can be sure that despite all efforts to create a family culture and respectful workplace, a complaint or protracted conflict will surface.
Workplace Restoration is an emerging process developed to support those involved to re-establish harmonious working relationships, whether among individuals, within a team, or a wider unit impacted by these situations. Early engagement in the restoration of a healthy workplace is an important responsibility of employers and ultimately supports the business lines and operational requirements of any organization.
Highlights of this interactive presentation include:
* Learn the Five Phases of a Workplace Restoration Model and discover why Restoration is important.
* Explore the role of the leader/manager in restoring damaged working relationships.
* Examine a case study to generate discussion and learning.
Participants supporting employees in any organization and of all skill levels will benefit from this session.
