In 2019, AllSumJobs interviewed two experts in the field of recruiting and human resources as part of our Professional Tips series. These experts are Angela Efros, Vice President of Business Development and Sales at HG Plus Consulting; and Andrew Ko, Senior Partner and recruiter at the Lucas Group. We’ve repackaged these interviews into a series of courses to help you build your resume, master your interview, and settle in well at your new workplace.
This is the third of these three courses, centered around workplace bullying. Given the topic, we’ve also included some workforce videos we created in 2019 about workplace bullying. We’ve done our best to intertwine these short videos in between segments from our experts, especially given they helped us write this content. Bullying is an important topic regardless of where it happens, so it’s essential that people know how to recognize and deal with these problems as they arise.
- Avoiding workplace bullying. Before speaking to the experts, we lay out some basic processes for recognizing and reporting bullying in your workplace.
- How to handle rejection. Sometimes bosses or coworkers will overly critique a person, which may not always be bullying but none the less, it is important to be able to handle rejection and criticism with grace and dignity.
- Solving workplace conflict. We talk about conflicts within the workplace, which may or may not involve you. How do you mediate these situations? Our experts chime in and we go over some processes.
- Changing career. We ultimately conclude this course with advice from our experts on how to change career, especially since it may be the only way to really be happy with your work life.
If you’re still unsure about how to handle these scenarios, a good complement are our workplace scenario videos that demonstrate best practices in the workplace!
