Women and Disrespect in the Workplace
Disrespect in the workplace is easy to spot. It can start as snide comments, gossip or someone being excluded but can escalate into bullying and harassment. Victims, most often women, can be too intimidated to speak up and bystanders often think it’s none of their business. So how do we fix it?
In this podcast, Elise Stevens speaks to Paul Pelletier, an expert in workplace respect and diversity, about what’s making our workplaces war zones.
Paul’s consulting team provides awareness and prevention training, education, resolution, counselling and support for organisations that want to address disrespect in the workplace.
As a victim of a dysfunctional workplace environment himself, Paul knows first-hand what it can do to individuals and organisations. He’s combined his expertise and personal experience to write a book to help organisations eliminate workplace bullying, The Workplace Bullying Handbook: How to Identify, Prevent and Stop a Workplace Bully.
Here’s some of his tips on how women can deal with disrespect in the workplace.
