Workplace Awareness Sessions
Over 1,000 employees of subscribing companies in National Capital District have attended a Bel isi PNG employee awareness session.
These sessions, delivered in collaboration with Business Coalition for Women cover important information, including:
What is Family and Sexual Violence
Types of abuse
Why your company has subscribed
What services are available and what is case management
Important information on services
Introduction to the Meri Seif Line operated by G4S
Support for men
Key contacts and tool kits
We have some learnings to share from these initial sessions:
Being able to link the services to your organisations policy framework and existing services is very helpful for staff
Early identification of key contact personnel is important for staff to access additional information or seek assistance / feel supported within the workplace
The sessions themselves are most impactful if:
Supervisors and managers attend a session to hear the same messaging and are encouraged to lead on support for staff
As many staff as possible are enabled to attend, including both men and women
Time and space for staff to feel confident to ask questions is important
Time available following the session should be made available for staff who are not confident to ask questions in the formal session
The feedback from attending employees has been very positive with many staff asking for the same information to be shared with their communities. We will seek further feedback to continually improve.
Please contact Bel isi PNG on how to organise a briefing for your organisation.
