Worldwide Branding Member Anthony Beasley Takes a Stand Against Corporate Bullying Today

Anthony BeasleyAnthony Beasley, a recent Worldwide Branding inductee, recently announced his participation in a campaign against bullying in the workplace.

Mr. Beasley will be a key presenter at this year’s Safety Institute of Australia ‘Visions’ Safety Conference on the Gold Coast which is taking place today, November 17, 2014. As part of the presentation’s pre-qualification processes, Mr. Beasley had to prepare a White Paper regarding the need for Accredited Training in the topic of “Managing and Preventing the Risk of Workplace Bullying.” This is because in Australia, there is currently no accredited competency-based program.

Mr. Beasley’s White Paper was accepted, and his team has supported him in the development of an excellent Prezi based presentation.

And in exploring beyond the White Paper, the topic generated such interest with Mr. Beasley’s team and clients, that he and his colleagues recently submitted a detailed application to the Australian Skills Regulator (ASQA) with two draft units to be accepted and released as nationally accredited. These are the first of their kind in Australia.

ASTRA Group Services LogoMr. Beasley and his team has also prepared a media release to align with this exciting development in a topic that costs our economy between $6B to $36Billion per year, and has tragically taken lives for those on the receiving end of bullying.

Regardless of the country or industry – Mr. Beasley feels that the topic of bullying in the workplace is a subject that is of interest and value to all.
