The Charity for Civil Servants

The Charity for Civil Servants

The Charity for Civil Servants supports both those who have been employed as civil servants, as well as those who are currently employed,
with any problems they may have at any point during their lives.  This may include financial support, money advice, relationship problems,
help after a bereavement, support regarding mental health and many other services.

As part of their on-going commitment to ensuring a safe and dignified workplace for all their staff, the Charity approached In Equilibrium as they were looking to run bullying and harassment awareness training for the whole organisation.  As a result, our trainer Julia Carden recently delivered some “Bullying & Harassment Training for Managers” as well as a series of customised half-day workshops entitled “Tackling Bullying and Harassment” for other staff. 

The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive and, as the following comments confirm, was considered both beneficial for the culture of the Charity and a worthwhile use of everyone’s time.

Why are you attending this course?

“Part of commitment to culture of dignity”
“It was compulsory to attend, which I’m glad I did”

What topics or sessions were of most value to you?

“All sessions were very useful – the whole course flowed perfectly”
“Exploring ‘grey’ areas of bullying and harassment”

How will this training improve your work performance?

“Well … any training of this standard helps to reinforce current practice and gives opportunity to re-evaluate current practice.”
“Be more aware of own impact. Be more confident in approaching/resolving issues at an early stage.”

What will you do differently as a result of attending this course?

“Think more about my own behaviour in the workplace and how other people perceive me. Be more confident in having difficult conversations.”
“Should I find myself in a difficult situation, I feel confident I would now handle it differently (+ better).”

Please describe your overall experience of the course –

“Very interactive, well structured”
“Positive and participative and very trusting”
“Excellent – enjoyable and practical, helpful”
“A good chance to discuss really important behavioural issues with colleagues”
“The course was relevant, pertinent and dynamic”
“Really enjoyable. Although it was a serious subject, there was some fun but the strong messages came across well”
