Workplace bullying and conflict resolution workshops go online with discounted places available for Sedgemoor businesses

Monday 8th March, 2021

Following the success of training held earlier in 2020 by the award-winning charity Stand Against Violence, businesses in Sedgemoor will be able to benefit from discounted courses thanks to the continued support and funding received from the Hinkley Point Community Fund.

Stand Against Violence have years of experience in developing techniques and delivering training in de-escalating situations and preventing negative consequences. Their courses have an upbeat approach that encourages employees to think more positively about themselves, aiming to improve morale, wellbeing and mental health within organisations.

The workshops have been specially designed to tackle problems that can go unnoticed in businesses, leading to employees suffering in silence. Sessions will be run online in a range of formats to suit different businesses. Courses available include:

Conflict Resolution – aims to develop skills to de-escalate and prevent aggression and negative conflict.

Anti-Bullying – looks specifically at workplace bullying, exploring the forms it can take and its impact on targets.   

Course bookings are flexible and we can set dates around individual businesses who would like to offer this to their teams.

As some funding remains for businesses to use until the end of March, it’s an opportunity for Sedgemoor based business to access high-quality training at a discount. Hannah Palmer, Training Lead at Stand Against Violence, said “With our training you are investing in your employees, your organisation and your community”. She went on to explain “As a charity, profits from our training are reinvested back into our work with young people. Our highly trained teachers aim to reach young people early so they develop the skills and are empowered to make positive social choices to avoid violence and stay safe.”
