Topic: Incivility in the Workplace

 

Key Learning Objectives:

We hear about it on the news. We see it in everyday exchanges. And, if research is to be believed, 98% of us experience it regularly. Incivility seems to have become "the new normal." If your organization isn't identifying the culprit, it should. It's costing you - a lot. In this one-hour session, you will learn about the damage incivility is causing in our workplace, what allows it to run rampant, and how to put it behind bars for good.

 

SHRM-GT COMMITTEE RAFFLE:

 The featured Committees of the month (Community Outreach / Digital Presence Committee) will be donating a $40 Amazon gift card and a Valentine's Chocolate & Coffee raffle basket at lunch. All proceeds will be donated to the SHRM Foundation. Purchase your raffle tickets to win!

 

Tickets:

$2 = 1 Ticket

$5 = 3 Tickets

 

Member and Non-Member Early Bird Deadline:

Geared to owners, executives, managers, and Human Resources professionals – this seminar will provide real-world, hands-on advice. Participants will learn the legal elements of a harassment claim, the components to successfully defend a claim, effective investigation techniques, media strategy planning, and much more.

Each committee and committee member has a direct impact on the success of the SHRM-GT chapter. Please consider volunteering for a committee as a valued member of our chapter!
