It’s not the money. It’s not the work itself. It’s the culture.

It doesn’t matter how much you pay, how important the project or how many weeks of vacation you offer. When the workplace culture is toxic, it has a significant impact on your bottom line. Research reveals that culture impacts morale, hiring, engagement, productivity and health and wellness. In fact, 75 percent of workplace harassment incidents go unreported per year. So what does HR need to do in order to create a welcoming, respectful and inclusive workplace culture—one that attracts top diverse talent, increases performance and engagement, fosters inclusion, collaboration and trust, and that makes great workers want to stay?

Shirley Davis, global workforce expert, business executive and president of SDS Global Enterprises will describe some of the most inexcusable behaviors that workers say occur in the workplace. She will also share the latest research and best practices that reveal how welcoming and respectful cultures are created, and how HR can deploy these strategies to bring resolution and ensure that employees have a voice.

You will hear how to:

  • Arm your organization with the knowledge and tools to address harassment and other toxic behaviors in the workplace
  • Apply best practices and tools for addressing workplace misconduct in an effective and compliant manner (the role of HR, leaders, and staff)
  • Create a safe space and empowering culture that enables employees to report misconduct
  • Improve your lines of communication between employees and leaders
  • Implement steps for building a welcoming, respectful and inclusive culture
