Under Australia’s Fair Work Act, your organisation has an obligation to your employees to protect them from bullying and harassment.
Our Psychologists apply their expertise in human behaviour to address bullying and harassment at both the systemic-level and the individual-level. When bullying is entrenched in the culture of a workplace decisive and effective interventions are required. It may be, for example, that the workplace lacks people management skills. Sometimes individuals are promoted based on their technical skills, but they may not have the interpersonal management, leadership, listening and communication skills needed.
We educate your workforce as well as intervene and train your employees in effective anti-bullying and anti-discrimination practices. Additionally, we support the victims through Ferris’ Employee Assistance Programs.
