EVERY COMPANY NEEDS A HEART
PROVEN TRACK RECORD
The Harassment Education Advisory Response Team (HEART) program culminates over two decades of psychological study, expertise and in-the-field experience with over 1000 workplaces.
Dr. Stephanie Bot spent several years researching, conceiving and developing the HEART program which integrates OHSA Violence and Harassment legislation, workplace best practices, psychological principles and paradigms, legal consultation and health and safety standards.
HEART is a brand that captures the hearts and minds of employees, instilling engagement, enthusiasm and commitment, not only to the requirements of legislation but also to the spirit of it.
The HEART Program inspires safe and respectful work cultures where organizations say with pride, “We have a HEART!”
THE HEART TEAM
The essence of the HEART program is the education and development of a HEART committee. These members work collaboratively to create a multi-disciplinary team within the workplace responsible for managing, responding to and preventing incidents of harassment. The HEART committee empowers workplaces to:
Protect companies from liability
Meet the requirements of the legislation
Overcome barriers to reporting
Provide safe, confidential protocols and processes for reporting, investigation, decision making and outcomes
Focus on protecting the dignity of both victims and alleged harassers
Improve psychological safety and enhance conditions for employee mental health
Inspire a workplace culture of respect
