interMEDIATE Dispute Management has an independent Bully Response Hotline available for workplaces. An important adjunct to your respectful workplace culture initiatives, the Anti-Bullying Hotline stands alongside your training and policies, to help ensure your workplace is safe from bullying, harassment, discrimination and unresolved conflict.
Most workers do not report workplace bullying for fear of retaliation, or knowledge that their complaint won’t being taken seriously. Bullied workers often fear that others in the organisation will become aware of their complaint and targeting will increase. Unfortunately bullies know this and the bullying thrives in an environment of silence and secrecy.
The response of managers to bullying complaints is often lacking, as they don’t know what they can do about it effectively.
Managers sometimes fear the bullies themselves, so they deliberately look the other way and ignore the problem.
Bullied workers suffer psychological and physical affects which lead to unplanned leave, presenteeism (at work but not working effectively), and a toxic workplace. Bullying results in resignations of valuable trained staff, loss of productivity, reputation and profits, costs of time and resources lost in litigation, and huge fines. The tragic human cost can be loss of life through suicide, stroke, and heart attack.
For organisations who understand the serious affect that bullying has on workers and their workplace, the independent and confidential Anti-Bullying Hotline is the answer.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the Anti-Bullying Hotline allows targets or victims of bullying, a fair opportunity to have their issues heard, receive referrals as required and have their issues dealt with quickly and effectively.
Ensure targets and victims of bullying get the very real help they need, when they need it.
