What is Workplace Bystander Intervention Training?

Workplace bystander intervention training is a type of educational program that teaches employees how to recognize and prevent workplace discrimination and harassment. The goal of bystander intervention training is to equip employees with the skills and knowledge necessary to identify and prevent potential problems before they escalate.

The Bystander Effect is a term coined by social psychologists to describe the propensity of individuals to feel less responsible for assisting or taking action when they are in a group. There are numerous reasons why people would choose not to get involved when they witness an intimidating or unpleasant scenario, particularly if others are present.

Many individuals are afraid of being labeled a victim or becoming a target if they get involved. Some people just don’t want to get involved; others seek out help from others; and still others fear becoming a target themselves if they do or say anything. Being an inactive onlooker to sexual harassment and other abusive behavior in the workplace can create a poisonous working environment.

While the Bystander Effect is a real psychological phenomenon, there are situations where people have intervened successfully to stop harassment and discrimination. The key is training employees to recognize potential problems and feel confident intervening before things escalate.

The Bystander Effect can be combated with bystander intervention training. By encouraging and preparing workers to intervene when they observe bullying and prejudice, bystander prevention training helps to dissolve the fear of not knowing when or how to act, especially in hostile work environments. Employees gain a greater understanding of how bystander intervention may help victims of discrimination and harassment, and they feel more confident and comfortable taking action.
