Why does my business need an Anti-Bullying Policy in the Workplace?
Bullying and discrimination costs your business.
Not only does harassment, bullying, and discrimination cause significant emotional and physical damage for victims and secondary trauma for other parties involved, but bullying also takes away from the productivity of your business and can result in:
- Fewer customers (due to poor staff feedback resulting in lack of trust from customers).
- Legal disputes (from victims experiencing poor treatment in the workplace).
- Potential damage to reputation of the business as a whole and certain staff.
Implementing an Anti-Bullying Policy in your workplace will:
- Reduce the risk of bullying and harassment occurring in the workplace resulting in higher productivity.
- Decrease the risk of legal dispute by defining the parties responsible for any bullying and harassment which occurs and decreasing your liability for the actions of employees.
- Define the consequences of participating in bullying or harassment and further define the responsibilities of employees and managers while deterring harmful and dangerous behaviour.
- Communicate a clear complaints process to employees in order to address and monitor all harassment and bullying issues and resolve disputes in a time-efficient, and empathetic manner.
- Demonstrate your business’ standards towards bullying and harassment and will show that your business has clear procedures on how to manage such incidents.
The Business Kitz Anti-Bullying Policy Template can be utilised and tailored to any business.
