'Tis the Season - How Resilient Are You?

With the holidays fast approaching and the work year coming to a close, chances are you will have numerous deadlines and tasks that will require action.  Although the holidays are meant to be a relaxing time, many can find them stressful and feel overwhelmed.  A fundamental strategy to use to get through stressful and demanding times is to focus on what you can change rather than those things outside your control. Remember, as thedoghousediaries.com reminds us, life is full of ups and downs.

For more on how to develop your ability to ride life's rocky road, check out the Personal Resiliency Builder. CommuniCorp Group will be giving away a limited number of PRB access codes for free so email your interest to info@communicorpgroup.com to secure yours today!

Bullying and New Fair Work Legislation

New Fair Work Legislation comes into effect as of January 1st 2014. The new laws give the employee power to lodge a claim of bullying directly with the Fair Work Commission. Obviously, workplace bullying is very serious and involves often quite complex behaviours.  Not only do the actions of the alleged perpetrator need to be considered, but also things like the perceptions of the alleged victim and the organisational context in which events occur. Many employer groups believe there is a lack of clarity with the legislation which could be leaving businesses vulnerable. This month, the Fair Work Commission released an 'Anti-Bullying Case Management Model' and a draft 'Anti-Bullying Benchbook' to assist in informing employers before January 2014 - this is definitely worth a look.

Commencing February 2014, CommuniCorp will be hosting a series of Senior Executive Business Forums entitled 'Preventing Workplace Bullying' to help clients navigate emerging issues and challenges in this area. For more information or to register your interest click here.
