SkillSoft offers free e-learning to help combat workplace harassment

Online learning provider SkillSoft is making free courses available to help employees tackle bullying, harassment and aggression at work.

SkillSoft says they are making the courses available in response to the recent spate of surveys highlighting the extent of bullying in the workplace.

"The issue of bullying at work is a serious matter and the extent of harassment in the workplace appears to be widespread," said Kevin Young, managing director of SkillSoft. "Even worse, new research emerges constantly which suggests that the problem is escalating. This situation has to be addressed, not only to help employees who are at the receiving end of such destructive behaviour, but for the sake of UK productivity, which is adversely affected as a result."

Kay Baldwin-Evans, head of research at SkillSoft added: "As one of the biggest e-learning providers, we have a wide portfolio of courses which help address the main people challenges faced by UK organisations. We are offering a selection that tackles the issue of bullying and workplace hostility on our website as a small step towards dealing with this problem."

SkillSoft have made the following online courses available:

  • Harassment at Work
  • Working with Aggressive People
  • Difficult People in the Workplace

The free courses, available until the end of July 2006, can be accessed by visiting
