As business pressures continues to mount, there’s an added sense of fear that employees are experiencing due to ambitious targets set out in a new (and in some cases unfamiliar) digital environment. As a result, harassment, disrespect and bulling have taken on a new shape with employees failing to report this behavior because of the lack of redress by employers when incidents are filed. This session will provide guidance on how leaders can create a workplace culture where employees feel supported and heard—despite the distance.
