Workplace Essentials Management Training

The Workplace Essentials Management Training program has been designed to assist managers to deal with employment related issues, it comprises of four sections;

  1. What is workplace in 2023 and what is workplace Misconduct
  2. Understanding workplace bullying, harassment, discrimination and sexual harassment.
  3. Reasonable management Action (RMA).
  4. Performance Management to avoid proven complaints against manager.

This training is recommended for all managers/team leaders/supervisors to help minimise costly and time consuming complaints against managers and to help resolve workplace interpersonal disputes.

The training is conducted by highly qualified and experienced workplace investigators who deal with complaints against managers and interpersonal disputes on a daily basis.  The training is not theory based, it is based on actually complaints and issues experience by managers.

Figures from the Fair Work Commission in relation to applications for Anti Bullying orders illustrate the high percentage of applications for orders that are made against managers. This makes the understanding workplace misconduct, reasonable management action and performance management absolutely essential for managers at all levels.
