  • Introduction

    Humans have a natural tendency to go astray, whereby they end up breaking norms in an illegal, unethical or non-traditional manner. In particular, co-worker Sexual Harassment, workplace Violence, and Bullying of colleagues are widespread organizational practices that tend to make the work environment toxic. The victims don't have the necessary sense of security and peace of mind to work productively, and resultantly the damage is not just to the person but the whole organization. This Workshop aims to apprise the participants about the psychological, cultural and organizational dimensions of workplace-related offences. Additionally, they will be introduced to the necessary policies and best practices that have stood the test of time in countering workplace offences.
