EMPLOYMENT LAW – BYSTANDER INTERVENTION
Empower Your Employees to Become StARS of Bystander Intervention
Syntrio helps employees become StARS at bystander intervention through training that promotes our bystander intervention techniques
In today’s increasingly interconnected world, bystander intervention has become a crucial skill for individuals across all industries and environments.
At Syntrio, we empower employees to become StARS of bystander intervention, equipped with the knowledge and techniques to effectively address and prevent potentially harmful or discriminatory situations.
STop the Interaction
The first step in bystander intervention is to assess the safety of the situation. If it is safe to do so, politely but firmly intervene to stop the interaction.
Seek support from others in the vicinity to de-escalate the situation. Inform colleagues, supervisors, or security personnel about the incident, ensuring that the targeted person feels safe and supported.
Distract the aggressor or disrupt the situation by diverting attention elsewhere. Engage the aggressor in conversation, offer assistance, or suggest a change of activity to de-escalate the situation.
Support the Targeted Person
After the incident, check in with the targeted person to ensure their well-being. Offer emotional support, listen attentively to their concerns, and connect them with appropriate resources if needed.
