A fascinating training package that will help you to prevent hiring possible problematic employees and how to deal with incidents that have already taken place

Prevention is the best medicine

Much legitimate concern has focused on the risk that employees or others with authorized access can pose to a company. An array of incidents such as major fraud, embezzlement, serious misconduct and violent incidents on the workplace have underscored that screening of current or new people is of increasing importance. In order to prevent such incidents from occurring, employee background and integrity checks are widely used. In- and pre- employment screenings have to filter potentially dangerous or high-risk applicants, so that only individuals with ‘clean’ backgrounds are hired.

Current screenings mainly focus on historical information. The screening details the employee’s professional and personal history up until the time the check is completed. But it provides no ongoing information, nothing about the employee’s current situation. The problem that companies are faced with is that no matter how clean an employee appears during the first assessment, good employees can ‘go bad’ for a variety of reasons - often related to professional stress or personal problems that may feel overwhelming to the employee.

Structured psychological personality assessment

Structured psychological personality assessment and personality based integrity tests bypasses problems described above. Furthermore, this scientific approach provides information that can then be used to make reliable future predictions about the employee’s behavior, and what can be expected of him when he faces specific work related problems or personal stress.

Participants of this workshop will learn how psychological profiling techniques and personality assessment instruments can provide useful information about the employee, which will provide a clear picture of the risks he may pose for the company. It will be discussed how in- depth psychological interviews can add to the identification of ‘red flags’ for future misconduct, and make the personality assessment complete. Measurable psychological differences between white-collar offenders and non-offenders will be presented. With case examples it will be illustrated how threat management strategies can be put in place to make early identification of high-risk situations or –employees possible.

Dealing with problems at the workplace

Sometimes problems arise also with employees that have been employed with the company or organization for a longer period. Dealing with direct or passive-aggressive behavior in the workplace is a demanding task even for most experienced professionals. We will also explain the difference of affective and predatory behavior models and how to deal with both situations. The ultimate goal of any work related conflict should be the ”win-win” solutions, but this often requires much work and knowledge of the best practices.

Executive board, directors and managers, HR, employee relations, training and development, security, corporate communications and other sections of the organization need to understand the basic concepts predicting problematic behavior and have tools to peacefully confront the employee in question.

Defusing angry employees

In this training session the participants will also learn the principles of conflict negotiation, basic steps of conflict resolution and how to control your own natural responses.We will also go through common errors and oversight as well as various methods to respond to a threatening or troublesome behavior. What are the individual (static risk factors) as well as situational factors. How to formulate a threat response teams, how to initiate the threat response programs and what types of response strategies can be used. How to monitor and follow-up the case later on.
