IP Inclusive Workshop - Managing Inappropriate Behaviour at Work

IP Inclusive Workshop - Managing Inappropriate Behaviour at WOrk


  • Have the recent allegations in the press around misconduct left you concerned about how to address inappropriate behaviour at work?  
  • Are you worried that behaviour at the company Christmas party might leave you with a massive hangover?   
  • Do your managers struggle to deal with banter or humour which oversteps the mark?  
Inappropriate or unacceptable behaviour in your teams can drastically affect morale and performance...and more seriously may lead to claims of bullying and harassment.  But help is at hand... 
Our interactive seminar will offer some practical, down to earth guidance on how to tackle such situations with confidence, and stop them escalating into costly grievance or disciplinary procedures. 
Aimed at all IP professionals and their managers, in both large and small organisations and with any level of experience, this seminar will:

  • Look at the impact of inappropriate behaviour at work   
  • Help you to identify the line between “harmless banter” and unacceptable behaviour   
  • Identify practical steps for building truly inclusive teams, where everyone feels comfortable and able to give of their best   
  • Produce guidance to share with the wider IP Inclusive community 
The event will be run by Stella Chandler of Focal Point Training and Consultancy, who has extensive experience of helping clients to deal with inappropriate behaviour at work.  Dominic Houlihan, from the UK IPO’s HR team, will also share his experiences on creating an inclusive working environment and offer advice on best practices to avoid causing upset or embarrassment amongst colleagues. 

The event will take place on Thursday 1st February 2018 at Kilburn & Strode from 4-6pm with drinks and networking afterwards. For more information and to register, please click here.
