Dignity at Work Policy and Complaints Process
The SPCB aims to promote a strong culture of openness and equality in which people are treated fairly and with dignity and respect. It has sought the support and cooperation of staff in creating this culture and ensuring that others are treated fairly by developing and maintaining positive working relationships with colleagues and others with whom they interact daily. We aim for staff to be able to work in a culture in which they feel valued for their contribution, where they can utilise their talents and resources in order to reach their full potential.
We hope that by promoting Dignity at Work as a serious commitment it will have the positive benefit of enabling staff to feel confident about challenging and reporting any such behaviour they are concerned about at work, whether this is displayed towards them or someone else.
In order to help maintain this standard, we have developed a Dignity at Work Policy for dealing with complaints about any incidents of harassment, bullying, discrimination or victimisation. All of which are unacceptable to the SPCB and will not be tolerated. Details on how the policy and process for complaining are applied can be found below:
