Deep Dive Webinar – Workers Protection Act 2024

Summary

Due to the overwhelming popularity and demand from attendees on our L&D Toolkit Webinar Series, we are thrilled to announce our Deep Dive Webinar Series!

Based on the popularity of our 45-minute L&D Toolkit Series Webinars, which indicate a need for a deeper dive into the subjects, we will be launching 2-hour sessions focusing on the most sought-after topics.

Coming into force in October 2024, the Worker Protection Act will introduce a new duty on employers to take reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.  

During this engaging two-hour session we will explore practical tools and techniques for preparing for the Worker Protection Act, identifying practical steps you and your organisation can take.  

Having explored the legal background to the changes, we will focus on four key areas for action: 

  • Policy and understanding: What should an effective policy on sexual harassment look like and how can this be effectively incorporated into wider policies on bullying harassment, dignity and respect? What steps can you take to ensure true understanding of the meaning and impact of harassment, how to identify where behaviour has crossed the line and to promote proper understanding of your policy? 
  • Culture and respect: The steps that can be taken to promote a culture of dignity and respect within the organisation, creating an environment in which sexual harassment is less likely to happen. How to assess and improve organisational culture at all levels of the organisation and built respect into key workplace interactions. 
  • Dealing with challenges: How to review the robustness and accessibility of your processes for addressing poor behaviour, dealing with complaints and supporting those involved in the process. How to encourage all team members to respond effectively to challenging behaviour, support each other and ensure confidence in your processes. 
  • Training and engagement: Steps to take to train and properly inform team members at all levels in your organisation about the impact of the Worker Protection Act, everyone’s rights and responsibilities and to engage effectively with your workforce about the issues. 

This Deep Dive Webinar is aimed at Senior Leaders and Middle Managers, particularly those who drive or manage organisational culture or risk, such as HR and L&D teams. It is also beneficial for managers seeking to understand the broader context of their organisation’s overall development and who may find themselves supporting their more junior colleagues.
