Discrimination, Victimisation, Harassment, and Bullying
John Varlow | Training and Consultancy is proud to work within the NHS and associated industries. Part of this pride comes from a desire to drive equality and diversity in the workplace, but we believe there is still lots to do.
We have decided to take a “no exceptions” rule to acting in the right way for our contracts. We celebrate the differences in our society and will not tolerate any form of bullying, victimisation, or harassment within our organisation, or noticeable within our clients and contractors.
We are aware of the privileges some dominant groups in society have enjoyed, consciously or otherwise, and whilst we cannot redress the balance, we will be aware of the disadvantaged and support everyone with sensitivity and respect.
Should we notice a case of obvious bullying, harassment, or victimisation we will look to address this with those involved. We will also invoke the local whistleblowing policy or, if absent, our own, to ensure that steps are made to prevent the situation arising again.
Discrimination, victimisation, harassment, and bullying are a real problem for everyone. Everyone has the right to be treated with humanity, dignity, and respect. Everyone has a duty to ensure that happens.
We are drawing a line in the sand. We are standing up for those who are being treated unjustly, for what is right. Our revenue is not as important as the lives of those with whom we work. This should be self-evident.
If anyone disagrees with this view, we respect that, and respectfully decline to work with them.
