Civility at Work: How to Build a Culture of Respect, Legally and Effectively, Both In Person and Online - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how create and enforce a culture of civility and respect in your workplace.

Do your employees respect one another? Your customers? Your company as a whole? No matter how hard you try to enforce a positive workplace culture, it can all be undone in a moment by one rogue tweet, email, or comment across the water cooler.

A culture of workplace civility and respect—one in which harassment is simply not tolerated—must come from the top. But enforcement can be difficult.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) imposes strict limits on employers when it comes to regulating employee communications, even if your workplace is non-union. And many states have laws that restrict employers from regulating employees’ legal off-duty conduct—which includes the vast majority of social media communications.

Walking the tightrope between what you should regulate and what you cannot regulate can perplex even the savviest HR professionals. But help is here.

Use this all-new on-demand webinar on civility and respect in the workplace that will clearly explain the legal steps you can and should take to enforce a culture of respect in your workplace, as well as the legal lines you are not allowed to cross.

You’ll learn:

  • How to legally—and effectively—draw “a line in the sand” when it comes to civility and respect in the workplace
  • Proactive steps for minimizing claims of incivility, harassment, and discrimination in your workplace
  • Pointers on how to foster a culture of respect, inclusiveness, and civility
  • What to do if someone complains about disrespect or rude behavior in your workplace
  • The limits of protected speech in the workplace
  • Examples of employment brands that were tarnished when employees “went rogue” by writing explosive tweets, Facebook posts, and other social media content
  • What employers—both public and private—can legally do to monitor and control employee speech, both live and online
  • How to avoid civility policies that could run afoul to NLRB rules
  • The NLRB’s current and anticipated rules on social media usage at work—and the practical impact on workplace policies covering what employees can and can't say on social media
  • Legal steps for handling a situation when an employee crosses the line and acts disrespectfully on social media
  • Proactive steps for creating a positive workplace culture where employees thrive, limiting your chances of having to deal with these problems in the first place

BONUS: You’ll also get a handy culture assessment tool for examining whether your workplace breeds bullying or tolerates other negative behaviors that you should address.
