Prevention & resolution of harassment (employees/managers)
The Public Service Agency's new draft policy on the prevention and resolution of harassment mandates training for managers and awareness training for employees. This policy defines new responsibilities for managers with regards to the prevention and resolution of harassment situations. It also requires all managers on all levels to be assessed against the key leadership competencies as apply to the prevention and resolution of harassment situations.
Given the complexity of harassment situations, developing new competencies has become a necessity. The focus is on the development of practical competencies adapted to your work environment. These competencies will enable you to better assume the responsibilities defined in the new draft policy.
