MCC seminar teaches attendees about bullying in the workplace

McHENRY – About one-third of the workforce will experience bullying in the workplace, according to panelists of “Rebel Without A Cause: Best Practices for Responding to Workplace Bullying,” at a recent Section of Labor and Employment Law Conference in Chicago.

According to U.S. Department of Justice statistics, about 2 million violent crimes occur at work each year.

McHenry County College will offer “Preventing Workplace Bullying,” a seminar from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday at the Shah Center, 4100 W. Shamrock Lane in McHenry. 

“Preventing Workplace Bullying” is facilitated by Sheri Bland, trainer, strategic planner and president of Sheri Bland Solutions. She will offer practical instruction on how to recognize and prevent bullying in the workplace. 

Without intervention, bullies are unable or unwilling to recognize the effect of their behavior on other people. Left unchecked, workplace bullying leads to increased stress, reduced productivity and harm to the physical and emotional well-being of staff members. The course fee is $99.

To register, contact the MCC Registration Office at (815) 455-8588 and mention course ID: NTL C22 003.

For information, contact the McHenry County College Shah Center at 815-455-8593  or visit shahcenter@mchenry.edu.
