Workplace Conduct Compliance Training: What’s Included?
Have you ever wondered why official codes of conduct became necessary? Some believe it’s not required because conduct includes ‘common’ sense, or ‘common’ decency, or even ‘common’ professional courtesy. However, the fact remains that problems of conduct still happen within the workplace. People become subject to bullying, violence, hate crimes, or other abuse. Others seem caught in habits of substance, or alcohol abuse and thereby are having a difficult time functioning at work, unaware that there’s help available. Workplace conduct training offers the know-how of what to do in these situations.
What’s Included in Workplace Conduct Training?
Workplace conduct includes a variety of a factors. Often times the problems include after hours. Online harassment and bullying are very real in today’s risk scenarios. Therefore, true conduct training should include topics within and without the workplace. Some of these topics include the following:
- Workplace Bullying – this subject many people don’t want to acknowledge it occurs. However, bullying comes in different forms and then often escalates to sometime dangerous levels.
- Violence in the Workplace – here is another topic many people would like to say doesn’t exist. Unfortunately, violence can even come in forms of minor threats.
- Substance Abuse – more often than not, when drugs or alcohol influence an employee, behavior changes toward work, and coworkers.
