Spar is launching a training scheme to tackle sexual misconduct in the workplace later this month.

Spar MD Debbie Robinson told Convenience Store that she had been developing the programme since November last year.

Robinson said Spar was unable to find a suitable existing training course and therefore it was developing its own using feedback from one in-house team that is evenly split from a gender perspective.

“The idea for this training course has been about for some time. It is about setting and maintaining standards of professional behaviour, to understand what is acceptable or not,” she said.

“Our approach on this training is to build the behavioural standards with a representative group of employees from across the organisation. So, when we come to roll out it out to everyone else, we will have advocates and ambassadors of the behavioural standards already in place.”
