Build a strong culture of dignity and respect at work
Building employees’ skills to manage difference and understand the impact of their behaviour on others is vital. Banter can quickly lead to complaints of discrimination, cultural differences can be misinterpreted and lead to employees feeling victimised.
These are the types of issue that lead to serious allegations, high-profile and expensive claims and badly damaged employees. So training employees to have difficult conversations and treat others with respect will keep you out of the employment tribunal.
To minimise grievances and potentially costly tribunals, you need employees who understand their rights and responsibilities in relation to equality and diversity, bullying and harassment.
Our work with staff includes:
- Bullying and harassment focus groups that look at perceptions of workplace bullying and harassment. We produce a comprehensive report capturing hard and soft evidence of perceptions and experiences; and recommendations for ways forward.
- Short programmes in recognising, avoiding and responding to bullying and harassment at work
- Short programmes in anti-banter at work
- Short programmes in Fairness and Dignity at work
There is no evidence that workplace bullying in the UK is on the decrease, despite the various attempts made to reduce its incidence. So it’s time to look again at the data, and how to tackle this hidden, expensive and corrosive workplace problem.
This paper outlines what you can do, in your organisation, to reduce bullying andharassment at work.
