Everyone at Serco has the right to be treated respectfully at all times in a workplace free from any kind of bullying, harassment or violence.
What seems to you like a harmless comment or action may offend someone whose culture is different from yours. So take care that your behaviour isn't making someone else uncomfortable.
Bullying - means any offensive, abusive, intimidating or insulting behaviour or abuse of power that makes someone feel upset, threatened, undermined, humiliated or vulnerable.
Harassment - means any behaviour that offends someone, violates their dignity or intimidates or humiliates them. This includes: bullying, using threatening, abusive or insulting words, physical threats or assault, unwanted physical or psychological contact, or open hostility in the workplace.
Violence - violence isn't just physical violence. It is any behaviour that makes someone else feel threatened. Examples of violence include: verbal abuse, offensive language, racist or sexist remarks, threatening to do harm, or physical attacks, including spitting and throwing objects.
These behaviours are unacceptable, we will not tolerate them, and we will take action against individuals who behave in this way.
If you see or hear violent or harassing behaviour, do not let it go unreported. Always Speak Up - the sooner the better.Read more
