Handling the Politics of Workplace Bullying - September 27
How to Create Accountability & Confidence: Your HR Toolkit to Stop Workplace Bullying and Disruptive Behaviours

The concept of ‘office politics’ can drag the morale of your organization down. And what’s interesting is the most people look to HR to ‘fix everything’ leaving the expectations high and unrealistic.

Without this kind of training, you’re in the battlefield unprotected.
