Higher Education

Higher Education Solutions.

Minimize the risks of non-compliant behaviour and prevent workplace violence.

Build Better Lives for employees at work, home and in the community.

It’s a moving target that no one seems to hit. Higher education institutions face a constantly changing environment related to aging workforces, increased workforce diversity, and new compliance laws related to bullying, harassment, and toxic workplaces.

ProActive ReSolutions can help higher education institutions level the playing field and build better lives for their staff.

Higher Education institutions face a constantly evolving environment and are influenced by not only demand for changing educational offerings but must also manage a diverse workforce compromised of an aging demographic of workers, a reduction in the number of tenured faculty staff, as well as an increasing number of younger workers joining the workforce.

Complicating matters is the need for higher education institutions to provide increased security for both staff and students without creating an atmosphere of paranoia or panic.

The impact of these changing environments can be clearly seen on many campuses. Communication challenges arise from a more ethnically and generationally diverse workforce. Value and cultural conflicts arise between established employees and new hires, and staff and student compliance-related issues related to bullying, harassment, hostile work environments, and workplace violence begin to surface.

While policy and procedures serve as a blanket solution to provide staff with some direction, compliance with policy and procedures is more difficult. Often, policy and procedures are too complex or complicated for staff to understand and implement. Further complicating the matter, in-house expertise related to workplace violence prevention are generally lacking and often do not include best practices.

ProActive ReSolutions is a worldwide recognized leader in working with higher education institutions to help address these new and evolving challenges.

Our Organizational Compliance, Conflict Management, and Workplace Violence Prevention solutions provide all levels of higher education staff including faculty, management, and senior management with access to the training or consulting solutions they need in order to be able to deal with ongoing negative behaviours, conflict management, and workplace violence that may impact employees at home, work or in the community.

Our solutions range from individual offerings to customized large scale and global solutions. Our large-scale and global solutions include training, consulting, and ongoing support that are tailored to fit the organization’s culture, values and needs.

Who is this for?

Administrative staff, faculty, managers, departmental heads, HR managers, HR directors, deans.
