How to Achieve The Drama-Free Workplace
How to Achieve The Drama-Free Workplace: 3 Key Principles
In her book, The Drama-Free Workplace: How You Can Prevent Unconscious Bias, Sexual Harassment, Ethics Lapses, and Inspire a Healthy Culture, Patti Perez, VP of Workplace Strategy at Emtrain, introduces fresh ways to solve some of HR’s most challenging problems. Whether the current workplace drama at your organization involves issues related to sexual harassment, ethics lapses, bias or diversity, these innovative solutions will get you closer to becoming drama free at work.
At this event, sponsored by the Society for Human Resources Management – Northern California Community, Patti will focus on the reasons behind her groundbreaking principles as well as on practical ways to implement her solutions.
Three Key Principles
- The litigation-avoidance paradox: How to unshackle your company from the grip of irrational fear since taking steps in a singular effort to avoid lawsuits, paradoxically, actually invites employees to head to the nearest courthouse. (Chapter 5)
- How we can anticipate drama-producing events and properly prepare for them to minimize the likelihood that they will lead to workplace drama. (Chapter 6)
- The ways in which we can implement lessons learned from a culture of safety – one that authentically focuses on working together to prevent workplace accidents and injuries – into the world of workplace conduct. (Chapter 7)
Patti will use her trademark style—combining research, experience and humor—to present the audience with creative but doable solutions to make yours a healthy, inclusive and productive workplace culture.
