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.
