Marshalls Launches Speak-Up Culture Training Suite

Reading (UK), May 2024 - Marshall E-Learning has announced the launch of their new Speak-Up Culture Training suite, designed to empower organisations to create an inclusive, supportive and welcoming culture.

Marshall E-Learning Consultancy, part of Ciphr, a leading UK-based eLearning training provider, is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of their brand-new Speak-Up Culture training suite.

There are many reasons why establishing a speak-up culture is essential, including the support of employee wellbeing, the increase of organisational inclusivity, the prevention of issues and risk, and the boosting of an organisational reputation.

Cultivating a speak-up culture in an organisation has the potential to strengthen relationships, innovation, and productivity, as employees feel comfortable, safe, and supported. A speak-up culture offers many tangible benefits across all levels of the organisation, from internal communications to external reputations and results.

Marshalls recognised the value of speak-up cultures and have developed a new Speak-Up Culture Training suite designed to empower organisations with the necessary knowledge and tools required to implement speak-up culture practices effectively. This suite enables organisations to successfully build a culture that is transparent, positive and supportive.

The suite consists of the following eLearning training modules:

  • NEW Speak-Up Culture Building Blocks
  • NEW Being an Active Bystander
  • Bullying and Harassment
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Microbehaviours
  • Allyship
  • Whistleblowing
  • Inclusive Line Management

Ann Allcock, Marshalls' head of diversity, commented, "Few organisations can have missed the high profile cases in the news over the past couple of years, which have highlighted the importance of employers really understanding what is going on in their workplace in terms of unacceptable employee behaviours or malpractice - and the significant reputational and financial risks if they don't.
"Creating a culture in which all staff understand what inappropriate, unethical, or unlawful looks like - and play their part in flagging things that aren't quite right - is an important part of the solution here.
"But that will only happen if employees feel safe and secure raising sensitive issues, have a sense of belonging, and are confident that they will be listened to. That's why our new suite brings together modules on key topics in this space to both increase awareness and understanding, and ensure that the building blocks are in place to create a culture that will support speaking up."
