Author and Speaker Dr. Yvonne Corppetts to Lecture on Creating A Healthy Workplace (Emotionally)
Date:6/27/2012

Columbia, South Carolina (PRWEB) June 27, 2012

Dr. Yvonne Corppetts will be lecturing on creating a healthy, emotionally-safe workplace in her workshop series on June 30, 2012 in Columbia, South Carolina. According to the American Time Use Survey, in 2010, 82% of employed persons worked on an average weekday while 35% of employed people worked on an average weekend day. Those employed worked on average 7.9 hours on a weekday. Dr. Corppetts states "although this seems typical to an 8-hour day, the average person probably spends more time than that."

"When you consider the preparation time a person spends getting ready to go to work (getting dressed, eating, etc.), the time spent traveling to work and returning home, and the time it takes winding down, work consumes a good portion of our life," says Dr. Corppetts. The last thing someone needs is to be harrassed, humiliated, or intimidated at work by an adult bully.

Corppetts contends that workplace bullying is a serious problem that needs to be addressed in order to keep employees' morale and effectiveness high. According to The Healthy Workplace Campaign, "workplace bullying is a problem because in its severe forms, it triggers a host of stress-related health complications that can include hypertension, auto-immune disorders, depression, anxiety to PTSD." "Yes, workplace bullying can lead to even PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), says Corppetts.

Dr. Corppetts suggests that organizations develop programs or enhance existing programs that help build a healthy, emotionally-safe work environment. "Much attention is placed on the physical safety of employees particularly in certain job fields such as construction, law enforcement and healthcare to name a few, but what about the psychological/emotional safety of employees," states Corppetts. There are five key aspects to look at when the desire is to build and maintain a healthy work environment; (1) appropriate staff, (2) collaboration, (3) communication, (4) acknowledgment or recognition, and (5) leadership.

According to Dr. Corppetts when you put the right people in the right place and train them appropriately a strong foundation is set in place. Employees need to be trained to collaborate with one another, after all each person and their particularly job is part of the overall puzzle. When an atmosphere of competition comparison, and conformity goes awry (the three deadly C's) it can produce sabotage and withholding of information so that one person or department does not get what it needs from another to complete their job accurately. "Companies suffer all the time from this," says Corppetts.

Communication is key in every relationship whether at work or at home. Training employees how to communicate with one another and how to resolve grievances as they arise is key. Corppetts also suggests that employees on every level (pay grade or position) be acknowledged as an asset to the organization and given recognition. Sometimes this can be as simple as a thank you, as well as providing certificates of appreciation or monetary rewards. Lastly, leadership is important. Dr. Corppetts contends that not only should designated leaders lead by example, but emphasize that all workers can lead by example good work ethics and cooperation among one another.
