R-E-S-P-E-C-T in the Workplace


R-E-S-P-E-C-T in the Workplace

It’s that time of year again; we take time to give thanks for our health, our family, friends and a job that pays the bills.

Now that we’re stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner and about to move into the craziness of holiday shopping and the inevitable list of new year’s resolutions, we should also take some time to extend a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T to our fellow colleagues.

Workplace Bullying is More Common Than You Think

We’ve all had to deal with a co-worker who reminds us of the schoolyard bully we thought we left behind in our youth. Some of us have to deal with more than one. Still more of us will let a workplace bully take over our lives to the point where we can’t focus on life outside of our jobs. Not good…

There are quite a few organizations that exist specifically to try to eradicate bullying from the workplace. You hear much more about bullying in schools, but unfortunately, it does not end there. Adults can be just as childish and wreak havoc on their co-workers psyches long after they leave the schoolyards of their youth.

Now more than ever, workplaces need to adopt the culture of respect in order to preserve the sanity of everyone involved. In the best of times we never stop stressing about how to make ends meet and make sure our families are provided for. Add worrying about hanging on to the very job you depend on and it can bring out the worst in all of us. Bullies don’t usually need an excuse, but when things get tough, the claws become even sharper.

LMS Can Help Squash the Workplace Bully

With another new year upon us, companies that utilize an LMS platform can give a very valuable gift to their employees: the training and education they need to put a stop to bullying in the workplace. If you’re already utilizing online training to save money while giving your employees the knowledge they need to succeed, why not supplement their coursework with some practical information on how to identify, prevent and report abusive, manipulative and disrespectful behavior? We’ve all experienced the occasional “melt-down”, or witnessed another co-worker having one, but if you don’t know when yourself and others have crossed the line, things will devolve into a snake pit nobody wants to work in.

Your LMS platform can educate all your employees about the threat of workplace bullying and give everyone a chance to start fresh in the coming year.
