Dignity at Work Briefings for Employees

In July 2023, the UK government announced the Bullying and Respect at Work bill which seeks to legally define bullying, provide a Respect at Work code and overall create a framework to protect employers and employees. This will ensure all employees' 'Dignity at Work'. Being treated by others with courtesy and dignity is something that we all naturally expect. Our place of work should be no different to any other environment, and we should be familiar with feelings of value, decency, and self-respect. Bullying and harassment undermine this dignity and, where such behaviour is unchallenged, it can soon become the norm and adopted as company culture. We now have five generations in the workplace. It has never been more pertinent to prevent bullying and harassment in the workplace by fostering a culture of respect for different values and inclusion for different beliefs. 

In October 2024, the Worker Protection Act will come into force. This legislation will place onus on the employer to protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. Whilst guidance is set to be released, training the team on their responsibilities is a good place to start.
