Diversity Awards NZ 2014
Our upcoming workshop in the Diversity Workshop Series will give you the skills you need to create a healthy, productive work environment and to establish the policies you need to keep it that way.
From Bias to Bullying will highlight the most effective tools and approaches to identify inappropriate behaviours in the workplace and respond in the right way, covering:
- What bullying and harassment is and is not
- Effects on people and organisational culture
- Types of perpetrators
- Options for dealing with it – personally, informally & formally
Our facilitators Professor Tim Bentley and Dr Bevan Catley are highly skilled in this area and currently hold roles as AUT Director of the New Zealand Work Research Institute and Associate Head of the School of Management at Massey University, respectively.

This research explores whether respondents who self-identified as New Zealand Europeans experienced less bullying and less severe outcomes than those who self-identified as Māori, Pacific Island or other ethnic groups. Social support was also examined as a potential buffer against the negative effects of bullying. Respondents with more supportive supervisors and colleagues reported experiencing less bullying and less strain. The implications of these findings for management of workplace bullying are discussed in this report.
