Course Introduction

Many people think that bullying only happens when you are a child or in school. But despite increasing awareness, bullying remains a major problem in many workplaces. Estimates suggest that 1 in 6 people in the UK have experienced bullying at work in the last three years, and 1 in 5 people have witnessed it in the workplace.

When faced with inappropriate behaviours, people might be unsure of how to respond. Or they may not even realise they are being bullied. Understanding how to recognise, respond to, record and report bullying can help create a safer and healthier working environment for everyone.

This Bullying in the Workplace Online Training course takes on average 30 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The EssentialSkillz Bullying in the Workplace eLearning course uses examples and interactions to highlight behaviours that would be considered bullying. It explains the differences between banter, firm management, bullying and harassment. The course uses multiple scenarios to help people identify bullying and cyberbullying, and how workplaces can work towards preventing these behaviours.

We all have a responsibility to work together to prevent bullying at work and help create a respectful and inclusive environment. However, despite everyone’s best efforts, bullying might still happen. The course describes how you can better recognise signs that you or someone else is being bullied and what steps you can take to stop it from continuing, for example, by speaking up or seeking help from a manager, HR or another relevant person in the organisation. Lastly, the course outlines how you can raise a formal complaint through your organisation’s disciplinary and grievance procedures and how you can better protect yourself if you experience bullying.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Bullying in the Workplace eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.

Why is this course important for compliance?

  • Harassment is against the law under the Equality Act. But there is no distinct piece of legislation that protects people from bullying at work. Bullying might, however, be covered under other legislation such as the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 or the Human Rights Act 1998.
  • Employers have a duty of care to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all their employees.

Add your own questions

Create your own question and answer bank to test your users on the key information that they need to know to be fully compliant. Set core questions to appear in the test section that users are required to pass so that crucial learning points are reinforced.

Randomise test questions

Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
