General manager HR consulting, Randstad
NO one likes to be the subject of office gossip. However when this gossip becomes a source of anxiety – or takes a more serious turn and becomes office harassment – it’s important to report this behaviour to the HR team immediately. Harassment and bullying can have a long-lasting impact on both employees and the entire organisation. These behaviours can affect relationships, create anxiety, undermine leadership and result in loss of focus on work tasks. They can take a significant toll on the emotional wellbeing of employees and on the culture and productivity of a workplace.
