Is Bullying affecting your Workplace?

Is Bullying affecting your Workplace?

Society has come along way in terms of acceptance and awareness. These are two different but equally important terms. Acceptance can be defined as a person’s agreement or approval to the reality of a situation without attempting to change it. Awareness is knowledge or perception of a situation or fact. Whether it be gender, race, religion, disabilities or sexual orientation, all people are entitled to equal rights and respect.

Bullying is a huge issue that is being recognized and addressed worldwide whether it be verbal, physical or cyber. There is a certain stigma that adults are not a target of bullying, maybe a preconceived notion that unless you are under the age of 18 you should be able to “brush off,” “get over” or “have thicker skin” towards unkind acts or words aimed at you.

The truth is there are no limitations or age requirements as to who is a victim of bullying. It is important to be able to recognize what bullying is and the negative effect it can have on the team and the business as a whole. If you see bullying in the workplace, it is your responsibility to do your part in contributing to a healthy workplace. Here are some tips from Alberta Learning Information Services on how to identify, address and resolve any bullying.

There are laws to protect employees from bullying. Take a look at our Employment Regulations Contact List to know different laws created for your protection.

Resume Bank for Employers

Beauty Service and Retail Professional Resume Bank

ATTN: Alberta Beauty Industry Employers We know it’s hard to find dependable staff.

Our mission is to cultivate Alberta’s beauty industry by connecting employers with service providers in order to meet their staffing needs.

Our Professional Resume Bank is one of the tools we use to accomplish our goals. This resume bank is a free service to both, employers and workers, dedicated to maximize success rate of meeting staffing demands.

Don’t get swamped with ineligible resumes! Cut time with ESG’s Resume Bank. Our resume bank allows you to browse anonymously and search profiles by industry skills.

Not only does this save you time, it also protects your privacy by avoiding constant job postings on job banks where not only your competitors see your hiring activity, it also sends a message to Service Providers that you are unable to keep staff (whatever the reason may be).

How does the Resume Bank work?

Service Providers and support workers all over Alberta upload their resumes to maximize their exposure to hiring employers. All pertinent information is available, such as education and experience, and most importantly, all the technical skills (services) they are certified to perform.

Though ESG asks all individuals to only include skills for which they are certified to perform, we recommend always conducting your own background check and confirming documentation.

Employers are able to browse and review profiles on the Resume bank after creating an Employer account. If you find any profiles you are interested in, submit your interest directly to them. We recommend always meeting for interviews in a public place.

Why are the Resumes discreet?

The resumes are discreet to protect the identity and privacy of Service Providers all over Alberta.

To use the Beauty Service and Retail Professional Resume Bank, simply visit executivespagroup.com and create your employer account.

Beauty Service & Retail Professional Resume Bank

ESG Beauty Service and Retail Professional Resume Bank

Alberta’s beauty industry is full of employment opportunities. Maximize your job search by posting your resume online for employers to view.

Posting your resume online is an effective way to look for work.

This work search method allows for employers to find you and maximizes your exposure. However, maximizing your exposure should not mean exposing your information. Your job search is personal. A resume holds confidential information that should not be accessible publicly.

At Executive Spa Group, we respect the need for privacy and identity protection. That’s why we have created the ESG Beauty Service and Retail Professional Resume Bank.

Our resume bank allows you to upload your information for Alberta beauty industry employers to view. Simply fill out the profile form and post! We do not collect private information. Employers contact you directly via email. Additionally, only employers that have created an account with us can view your resume. This means your information is protected and can only be viewed by legitimate employers who are actively recruiting staff.

Consider the following notes for protecting your identity when posting your resume online:
  • ESG will never ask you to include your social insurance number, full name, home address, driver’s license number, credit card or bank account numbers, or other personal identifying information on your online resume.
  • Cell phone numbers are generally unlisted, home phone numbers are not, therefore, provide your cell phone number instead of giving out your home phone number.
  • Instead of listing your home address, consider disclosing your city and province only. In general, employers use email to get in touch with candidates, not snail mail.
  • Creating an email address that doesn’t include your full name or other identifying information to be used only for your job search is the safest way to go.
  • Do not include your references in a resume or cover letter. Save that information for when they’ve asked you in for an interview.
  • Always meet with an employer in a public place.
