Event description

Description

Towards Dignity and Respect at Work

Many, and varied labels have been used to describe negative and inappropriate workplace behaviours, with power, persistence and harm to the victim being central to most. In recent years increasing attention has been paid to negative workplace behaviours, including bullying, however, as the information base grows, new gaps in knowledge emerge. Broad perspectives are needed to capture some of the diversity associated with the study of inappropriate and negative workplace behaviours, especially in a globalised world and in multi-cultural societies. These behaviours appear on a continuum ranging from being ‘unkind’ and incivility, through to victimisation, abuse, and “psychological warfare”; national culture is often a ‘lens’ through which these behaviours are perceived and experienced. This presentation provides an overview of the nature, cause, and consequences of workplace bullying. The passion for this area of research is driven by the desire to strive towards a better society by ensuring harmonious workplace relations, and ultimately maintaining the dignity and respect of employees who spend a considerable amount of their life at work.


When: Friday, 4 August 2017

Where: Council Chambers JO1.447, ECU Joondalup campus

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The SBL Professorial Research Talks are organised by SBL Research Office for our Professors to share their research insights with the School, the University, and the broader community. It also provides an ideal platform to promote SBL’s research capacity.

In each one-hour talk, there will be a presentation by one of our Professors, followed by an interactive discussion. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and engage with our Professors over refreshments.

I warmly invite you to join us for an exciting and sociable gathering.

Associate Professor Hadrian Djajadikerta, Associate Dean Research at the School of Business and Law
