Workplace Training Sydney
Evolve Workplaces provides workplace training in Sydney for businesses that need assistance with conflict resolution and similar human resources issues. Our workplace training program is quite flexible. We can work on-site at your business or host mediation sessions and training at our offices in Sydney.
We offer a wide spectrum of services for management and HR, including assisting with; workplace investigations, employee disputes, allegations of discrimination, bullying, code of conduct and behavioural issues.
In addition to facilitating workplace mediations, we encourage our clients to build internal capacity and confidence with handling workplace conflicts. We can train your staff to provide in-house dispute resolution, and we can also share our knowledge about how to conduct workplace investigations, so they are handled competently, fairly, and legally.
Evolve Workplaces offers half-day training in all these categories. By training your management and HR personnel, we can enable them to de-escalate internal disputes and carry out basic workplace investigations. In addition, they will know when external interventions are appropriate and required. Lastly, they will know what to ask for and expect of their external providers.
Would you like to get your employees skilled and confident to de-escalate disputes and mitigate the risks and costs of conflict on staff, management or HR? Evolve Workplaces focuses on four key areas of training for employees:
- Dispute resolution
- Code of Conduct
Your workplace cannot afford to ignore training in these categories in today’s litigious work climate. An unresolved dispute or harassment claim costs; time spent by staff, lawsuits, and bad PR. Not to mention, it is well documented that co-worker conflicts negatively affect productivity (increased absenteeism and presenteeism) and create a toxic workplace environment, impacting individual health and well being and recruiting and retaining good people.
Why not create an empowering and supportive work environment by training your staff in appropriate workplace behaviour and internal dispute resolution?
What are the benefits for your organisation?
When employees are trained in how to solve conflicts themselves, you can save time and money, whilst simultaneously building a favourable work atmosphere. Employees can learn skills like active listening and conflict de-escalation to keep small arguments from growing into larger, more impactful ones. If employees do need to go to management for a third-party resolution, they know what to expect when they have already been trained in the basics of dispute resolution.
Workplace Bullying and Harassment
You can’t open the newspaper today without seeing new claims of bullying and harassment levelled across all industries. With anti-bullying and harassment training, your employees learn what constitutes bullying and harassment. What to do if they observe or are subject to bullying behaviour and, how to manage it. Together, your team can understand what is expected of them and foster desired workplace behaviours.
Like harassment, discrimination in the workplace is another area where a volatile situation can escalate quickly and wind up in a legal morass. You can nip workplace discrimination in the bud by providing anti-discrimination training, so workers recognise even inadvertent prejudice and have the opportunity to change to more inclusive behaviours.
