  1. Sticks-N-Stones – Words Actually Do Hurt: Exploring Civility at Work

Workplace hazing is on the rise. What workplaces seem to be gaining in terms of both knowledge and technological advancement, they are losing out on basic social values and respectful treatment of others. According to studies conducted by McKinsey and the Harvard Business Review, rudeness, and incivility is on an upward trend. Unlawful behavior only makes up 1-3% of what happens in the workplace. The other 97-99% of “bad behavior” can be attributed to the churn of day-to-day behaviors like bullying, rudeness, and other forms of incivility that are having a great impact on an organization’s culture. Companies that effectively practice civility and respect in the workplace will experience tremendous benefits and positively impact their employees’ experience at work. During this upbeat and highly interactive course, the participants will learn how to identify uncivil behavior and develop techniques that can be utilized to cultivate better coworker relationships and create a culture of respect.

SHRM Georgia State Council is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
