Bystander Intervention Training

Empower Employees to be the First Line of Defense against Harassment

Bystander Intervention Training in the Workplace

HR Proactive Inc. has been building Respectful Workplaces throughout North America since 1997. Active bystanders, or people who take action when they hear or see an issue, have immense power to change what happens next in a workplace situation.

A key point of this Bystander Intervention training is to give employees the strategies to use and the tools they will need to have a positive impact on your organization’s workplace culture and prevent incidents from rising to the level of harassment.

Overview of Bystander Intervention Training

Empower employees to be the first line of defence against harassment/bullying and violence in the workplace. How we respond to these situations sets the tone for what we will tolerate and deem as acceptable behaviour. We may instinctively want to help the victim(s) but we hold back.

Our 15-minute video on Bystander Intervention Training will help employees learn how to safely take a stand and speak up, whether in the workplace or in a public setting, by being an active bystander while never putting themselves in harms way. HR Proactive Inc.’s trainers provide thoughtful and engaging content in a highly interactive format. Through case study scenarios and discussions, participants are provided with ‘hands-on’ experiential learning opportunities. Training materials can be rolled-out via Virtual-Live Instructor-led online platforms such as Zoom or WebEx.

Bystander intervention in the workplace creates a culture of accountability where any form of harassment, discrimination or bullying will not be tolerated.

Showing support to the victim, during or after when not possible in the moment, goes a long way in reducing the trauma they experience. Let them know that they are not alone.

It is more important than ever to make a difference and be an active bystander. It takes practice and mindfulness but everyone can do something!
