Helping clients with workplace behaviour
December 18, 2013
Inappropriate and unlawful behaviour in the workplace takes many forms. It takes the form of discrimination, harassment, bullying, sexual harassment, workplace violence and victimisation. Such behaviour is no different to theft. Sometimes it even looks like ‘harmless fun’ in the practice of joke telling or office gossip, as well as inappropriate use of social media. It may result in major costs to your business. It frightens away your best employees and silences the eager and the earnest people in your organisation. Bullies in the workplace can rob your organisation of the best people.
Our Workplace Behaviour Consulting Services focus on identifying the ‘causes’ of inappropriate workplace behaviour by working collaboratively with directors and senior management, in implementing the sustainable solutions. Our clients benefit from our independent and co-ordinated solutions:
