Respect at Work for Staff

Develop workforce capability for fostering a culture of respect, safety and inclusion.


In this half-day workshop, team members learn how to support a respectful, safe and inclusive workplace culture, including identifying and mitigating psychosocial risks. Team members will also develop an awareness of their obligations and protections regarding bullying, harassment, discrimination and sexual misconduct, and knowledge of workplace policy and grievance process.

    • Prevalence of workplace misconduct in the wider Australian labour market and industry
    • Risk factors (e.g., high pressure and competitive work settings, alcohol, power imbalances, leadership style, lack of adequate training, weak management structure, diversity imbalances, unconscious bias)
    • The costs of workplace misconduct (individual victim-survivor story, workgroup, employer)
    • Understanding responsibilities and protections under WHS legislation and workplace policy
    • Understanding respect and characteristics of respectful workplaces/interactions
    • Managing risks to respect (e.g., promoting mentally healthy work practices, managing your stress response, effective conflict resolution, mindful inclusion, upstander strategies
    • Defining harassment, bullying, discrimination and sexual misconduct
    • Understanding the grievance process
    • Personal commitments

        • Awareness of the legal protections and obligations of team members regarding workplace misconduct (bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, victimisation)
        • Knowledge and skills for prevention and early intervention
        • Understanding of the grievance processes including protections and supports
        • Increased motivation and commitment to cultural and behavioural change



Consistent with research on adult learning, we believe that the best learning outcomes result when participants engage holistically with program content. All Culture Plus Consulting learning and development programs incorporate experiential learning techniques, including opportunities to reflect on and apply learnings to the real-life challenges facing participants.


Individual contributors.

Optimal learning outcomes are achieved in a group size of 12-20 participants although larger group sizes can be accommodated. 


Developing an inclusive mindset requires commitment. The recommended length of the workshop is a half day (3 hours); however, shorter sessions are available on request. 

The workshop can be delivered virtually or face-to-face.
