Creating safe workplaces: Important conversations about bullying

Tuesday 14 November 2023
12:00 - 13:30 UK time

Health and safety in the workplace is important. This also means a place where you can be mentally healthy, and thrive in a safe environment without fear of bullying or harassment.

Our free webinar explores what it means to create a safe workplace, and will equip you with the tools to recognise the signs of bullying and harassment and your options if you see it or experience it yourself.

Our special guest Jonathan Wilson experienced workplace bullying first-hand. After over 28 years working for the Metropolitan Police, he retired due to a traumatic experience of workplace bullying. He now dedicates his time to raising awareness about the damaging impact of bullying on both individuals and organisations in his capacity as an ambassador for the organisation Stop Hurt at Work.
