Workplace Complaints – What to do

Workplace Complaints – What to do

Almost every day now we read something about bullying, harassment or discrimination in the workplace.

The constant theme that results from these incidents is the need to handle  them quickly via a well-documented and publicised grievance process.

Prevention is always preferable to reaction in these circumstances. This reiterates the need for training and circulation of all HR policies and procedures. This means that if an issue arises, you are able to clearly identify and confirm the steps within your policy and commit to exercising them straight away.

Don’t unnecessarily put off the discussion. Doing so may risk making those involved feel that they are not being taken seriously. This can result in a lack of cooperation throughout the process, making it more difficult to come to a resolution.

The sooner you act and seek any required assistance, the more likely you are to reach a reasonable and satisfactory conclusion for all parties involved. HR Central is here to help you achieve those goals.
