Workplace Fundraising Challenge
Anti-Bullying Week runs from 11 - 15 November in 2019. Our challenge to you is to use your creativity to find ways to create positivity and places where people love to work - and raise funds to help support Conduct Change and its campaign to prevent workplace bullying at the same time!
The theme for this year is #RespectMe It's all about treating each other - and ourselves - with respect, and learning more about each other in the process. Here's a few ideas to get you started:
A gratitude board where people can leave messages about what they were thankful for each day to encourage positive thinking
Go home early day
Bring your dog to work day (my personal favourite!)
Start a lunchtime book/art/craft club
Acts of kindness
Team events - walking, cycling, chess, quiz...
Have a jar for fines for swearing ... Or Shouting... Or using your phone in a meeting... Sending emails after 6pm... You choose!
I'm pretty sure that you can all come up with far more exciting ideas with your teams at work, or as an individual (or you can simply pledge as an individual through our crowdfunding page), so sign up today!

This is me, Nicki Eyre, and I'm the Founder of Conduct Change. I experienced workplace bullying myself, and the devastating impact that it had on my health, my confidence, and my career. What I wasn't prepared for was how long that impact was going to last, and how long it would take to recover.
That was several years ago, and I truly believe that the way in which bullying is currently dealt with in the workplace is detrimental to everyone involved, employees and employers - not to mention the ripple effect it has outside of work. I retrained as a coach, and established my business offering training and leadership coaching to help prevent workplace bullying, and coaching intervention when it does occur, with the aim of creating behavioural change rather than increasing conflict by using existing grievance and disciplinary procedures.
Even then, I felt like I wasn't doing enough, and through my work, I was meeting more and more people who had found themselves feeling bullied at work. People who had lost their jobs and were unable to face interviews, never mind risking working for someone else again. People who were selling their belongings to keep their heads above water. People selling their homes because they'd lost their income. People who had lost their self belief, confidence, self esteem, lost themselves. People who were still struggling with their mental health. People driven to the brink of suicide. People coping with the loss of family and friends who had taken their own lives. How can the system be working if this is the outcome?
That's when I started exploring other options, and speaking to people from around the world about their approaches, and their legislation (did you know that bullying doesn't have a legal definition in the UK, but harassment does?). At the same time, more and more stories of bullying were hitting the headlines. It was time for a change, time to start campaigning for a different way of dealing with workplace bullying. We need greater clarity over what constitutes bullying, and an independent route for both employers and employees to get support. That was the starting point for Conduct Change.
