The Trauma of Workplace Incivility: Guidance for investigators
Date & Time
Tuesday, April 26, 2022, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Lynda Byrd-Poller, Ed.D. Sharon Harrington
Incivility in the workplace causes the kinds of conflict that promotes employee relations investigations. While unearthing the facts of the case, investigators may also discover signs of trauma. The impact of trauma must not be ignored when conducting workplace investigations. Trauma is often present in investigations that involve harassment, bullying, or discrimination and have deep roots in organizational culture and climate. This session will discuss what organizational trauma is; how trauma might show up in an investigation and how an investigator can use their knowledge of trauma to successfully complete the investigation without creating additional trauma.
