Introducing Restorative Practice into workplaces

Restorative Practice might be just what post Covid employers are looking for.

This practical philosophy has the potential to ’set relations right’ in workplaces and help to rebuild trust in a workforce that has been over-stretched, under resourced and misunderstood.

Nina Harding leads a conversation with David Moore, one of the founders of the Restorative Justice movement in Australia and Jon Everest who has been instrumental in introducing Restorative Practice in NZ.

Join this webinar to learn about the common elements of Restorative Justice and Restorative Practice, the differences between them and the role and skills of the facilitator.

This approach to managing workplace relations might just be the balm that your organisation needs.
