am a good manager and I am doing a good job for my company.
The Company respects the Law and Diversity
issues rarely arise in my area. As and when they do I pass them
on to the HR Department, where they have people qualified to deal
with the issue and I can carry on with the job I am paid for. As
for Bullying, it is just not tolerated in the company and never
An employee in a local Company said: "After several months
of uninterrupted bullying I was a quivering wreck, unable to eat,
unable to sleep, terrified of going to work and all because of one
individual, unfit to be allowed out on his own let alone be in a
position of management".
senior manager, same time, in the same Company said: "We don't
have bullying here. It's not a problem"

Diversity has many aspects;
Discrimination, Equal Opportunities, Data Protection, Bullying and
Harassment are examples. Discrimination itself has several guises;
Race, Sex, Disability and now Age. However, statistics show that
Bullying in the Workplace is by far the most prevalent.
According to Personnel Today workplace bullying was the biggest
cause of staff grievance at 42.5%. The same survey found
that sexual discrimination, racial discrimination and harassment
rated at only 4.5% in comparison.
One in three people actually
leave their jobs as a result of bullying.
What numbers are involved?
We discuss these in this site but
as an initial Guide you will see case studies where Employment Tribunals
have awarded sums well in excess of £100,000.
Of course this nowhere approaches the cost to the company after
Litigation costs, manager and employee's time and the reputation
damage, especially to large organisations.
We also discuss the recognition of Diversity, and discuss how it
arises. We look at what the Law says and we point interested managers
to further reading on the subject.
However, when it comes to what to do, we can visit your offices
and take an hour or so of your time discussing the main actions
you can take in your area of operation to minimise conflict.
We want you to be fully aware of the issues surrounding Diversity.
What the impact could be on your company and your company's employees.
How to recognise conflict, be it Bullying, Harassment, Discrimination
or whatever, and what to do about it.
Of course, you can contact us for advice at any time in the future
and let's hope together we can minimise Diversity issues within
``You can employ Diversity experts by the hundredweight,
build-up your team of HR experts and encourage your PR people to
promote the fact that you care about your workforce - but if your
line-managers are not trained to `manage' people you may just as
well spend your time practicing writing zero's on your Corporate
cheque book. Employment Tribunal awards start at
£58K and Tribunals will take a poor view where an employer has failed
to follow basic Grievance & Disciplinary guidelines laid down
in The Employment Act 2002, Dispute Resolution Reforms 2004".
