IN THE WORKSPACE
Coaching and training for businesses
In Québec, since January 1, 2019, the Act respecting labour standards (LSA) requires employers to implement and make accessible to employees a policy for the prevention of psychological or sexual harassment and the handling of complaints. However, the implementation of a policy will not prevent the emergence of cases that could lead to psychological or sexual harassment.
Indeed, an existing policy and the best intentions are not enough. In practice, implementing a procedure does not mean that those involved will follow it. It is therefore necessary to inform and train employees to ensure a harassment-free workplace.
According to the LSA, the employer has an obligation of means. It must therefore act with prudence and diligence to prevent or stop harassment situations. A policy that does not exist, is misunderstood or is poorly applied has serious consequences. According to the study based on data from the 2016 General Social Survey on Canadians at Work and at Home, Statistics Canada found that 19% of women and 13% of men reported having been victims of harassment in the workplace in the previous year.
Inadequate management of harassment obviously affects the psychological health of the victim and those around him or her, but it can also have a significant impact on the efficiency of businesses, not to mention legal action that can be very costly and have a considerable negative media impact. Failure to have a policy in place could also result in an offence and a fine under the LSA.

ABOUT THE ONLINE TRAINING MODULE
With a strong focus on the actions and behaviours to adopt, this original online training presented by Octo D, approaches the subject of harassment from a new angle. We present you with an animated interactive module that puts you under the skin of six characters in as many different workplaces. You will experience their daily lives and will have to make decisions for each situation. The decisions are not always easy to make, just as in real life, we face subtleties and conflicting feelings even though the definition of harassment seems clear.
The goal is to contribute to a workplace where everyone knows how to prevent harassment in the workplace, to maintain a harassment-free environment and to know what to do if harassment is found to have occurred.
