Violence and harassment in the world of work are a threat to the dignity, security, health and well-being of everyone, affecting not only workers and employers, but also their families, communities, economies and society at large. In June 2019, through the adoption of ILO Convention no. 190 and Recommendation no. 206, the global community made it clear that such phenomenon cannot be tolerated, and the world of work needs to be equipped to put a stop to it.
Action needs to be taken at all levels, including at the workplace. And where to begin when designing a workplace policy and implementation strategy to that effect?
What are the key ingredients to align with the principles enshrined in ILO Convention No. 190 and Recommendation No. 206?
How to turn the policy into practice - assessing and managing risks, setting up committees, investigating complaints, training staff, supporting victims, monitoring data and so on?
This hands-on e-workshop aims to provide you with practical knowledge and tools for action.
In this learning journey you will explore and assess key ingredients for a workplace policy on violence and harassment that is aligned with the new ILO instruments, and be guided to use them to design a policy that works for you and your organization.
By working on actual policy examples from real organizations, together we will assess gaps with regard to C190 alignment section by section, review and compare related options and approaches as well as their implications, advantages and disadvantages. Eventually, your task will be able to select the ones that best adapt to your objectives and work context.
