Bullying, harassment & discrimination

We do not tolerate bullying, harassment or discrimination

What do we mean?

We are committed to creating an inclusive working environment in which everyone is respected and can flourish equally, without fear or favour.

We do not tolerate behaviour or attitudes that support coercion, intimidation or discrimination. Whenever and wherever we observe such behaviour, we always challenge it and support others who do so.

Bullying and harassment refer to any action or behaviour that any individual or group finds unwelcome, humiliating, intimidating, threatening, violent, hostile or discriminatory. Employees should be particularly sensitive to, and aware of, actions that may be acceptable in one culture but are not in another.

Discrimination means treating a certain person or group based on factors such as age, race, religion, national or ethnic origin, colour, gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital status, disability unrelated to the task in hand, union membership or political affiliation. This is not necessarily an all-inclusive list and factors could vary based on the laws of where your business is located.

  • Encourage and support those who challenge or report such behaviour

We never

  • Tolerate any action or behaviour that could be viewed as bullying or harassment
