Workplace Culture Assessments
Often in the absence of formal complaints there is a need to understand the culture of a work unit or department. Our analysts are trained and seasoned investigators who can perform an assessment of the workplace culture and provide recommendations for improvement of the culture to the employer.
Workplace Health Assessment and Implementation of the Psychological Health and Safety Standard
The Workplace Fairness Institute has developed unique tools to help organizations understand how they can protect their employees from psychological harm. We will review your workplace’s practices and policies to determine how well you rate against the 13 psycho-social risk factors contained in the Psychological Health and Safety Standard.
We also specialize in helping organizations to implement the Psychological Health and Safety Standard. Our practitioners are certified by the Canadian Mental Health Commission as Psychological Health and Safety Consultants.
Bill C65 (Federal) and Bill 30 (Alberta) Compliance Consulting
As a part of our assessment process we help Federal Government departments achieve compliance with the proactive requirements under Bill C65 to protect employees from psychological harm. We provide a similar service for workplaces covered by the Alberta jurisdiction.
Workplace Fairness Assessments
We are world leaders in the development of tools and services aimed at ensuring that workplaces have fair and efficient systems for managing conflict.
The Workplace Fairness Institute will help you build a Fairness Team that can carry on a review of your present fairness system, make modifications where necessary, implement changes and monitor the system.
Our Fairness Consultants will work with your leadership to develop a Fairness Charter that will guide the Team in its efforts.
Our consultants will train the Fairness Team in how to use and administer the Testing Instrument for Fairness Systems (TIFFS) and the Fairness Cost Analysis Tool (FCAT). These tools will aid the Team as they analyze and modify the present fairness system.
The Fairness Consultant will remain on-call through the four phases of the Fairness System Renewal Process:
- Needs Assessment
- Fairness System Design and Modification
The Fairness Consultant will be more involved in the earlier phases through training and design, gradually taking on a less active mentoring role in Implementation and finally reducing involvement as the team becomes fully trained by the monitoring phase. Throughout the process, however, the Fairness Consultant is available to answer questions, provide state of the art advice, and act as a sounding board for ideas generated by the Fairness Team.
Fairness System Audits
Where you are uncertain if you should embark upon a Fairness System Renewal project, we offer a quick and efficient general audit of your workplace fairness system. Our Fairness Consultant meets with your leadership and collects sufficient information to provide a preliminary score of your Fairness System. This preliminary score acts as an aid in your decision to carry on a renewal project. In addition to the Fairness System score, our consultant will provide your company with general advice on how to improve your existing fairness system. The Fairness Audit can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the size and complexity of your workplace. Performing these audits is another way of demonstrating compliance with Bill C65 and Bill 30.
