Is your workplace Bully Free?

Are you aware that 80% of performance issues are considered bullying by your employees? This encourages bully claims, if not understood properly.

Are you confident that you are fully covered legally?

 

Bite Size Educatin have developed a program to educate managers and staff in ways to minimise bullying in the workplace. Our training will equip you with a certificate you can proudly display on your wall  stating your workplace is a Bully Zero environment. This will be proof of your commitment to both employees and customers.
