was just reported yesterday in the Associated Press. A bi-partisan bill in the
Hawaii legislature intends to hold employers liable for bullying in the
workplace as a safety violation.
Bullying in the workplace will become subject to
workers' compensation. If the bill becomes law, it will be ground shaking for
other states. I thought you might want to read about.
This story is an argument for training. If you are a
business owner, manager, supervisor, human resources professional, or EAP...
what's your role?
light of this story, I thought I would send you part of last weeks Toolbox

in the workplace is a bigger scourge than sexual harassment. That's what

Imagine training all employees. Would it build awareness and reduce incidents and risk?
this web course that you may want to own. I inserted a short Q/A test
and printable handout in it for employees to keep. I rate this course

web course is a "platform independent". That means you own it, control
it, and it uploads to your own web server. (No linking or added fees,
but you must use a password or hide the course from search engines. Your
web master can do that pretty easily.)

harassment prevention training, even for companies with no policy yet.
this course is editable. I can remove any frames instantly in case you
see something that you don't want in it. It's just one click for me on
the software. I can add frames it as well with a professional voice.
There is less magic involved, but talk to me if you need that.)
Have a great weekend.
Feel free to send your comments. I evolve these products as I go, so feedback is good.
