It is vitally important to provide a supportive and caring work environment, where all employees feel respected and fairly treated.
Any policy should also include reference to harassment and bullying, including banter, which might be seen as acceptable by some but unacceptable by others.
A platform to enable staff to voice their concerns and problems should be available, to ensure employees individual needs are supported.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) offer advice and guidance on how to deal with bullying in the workplace for organisations, managers and employees.
