Consensus HR – Our comments:
Matthew Pinto-Chilcott, Owner of Consensus HR comments: “Violence and aggression in the workplace and world in general seems to be on the increase with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) saying that in 2019-2020 there were 688,000 reported incidents of violence at work. As part of our Employee Handbook and the HR Policies and Procedures we ensure a detailed section if written that provides clear and practical guidelines to businesses and their team on how to manage correctly, to best practice and the law. Nobody comes to work to experience bullying, violence or aggression and should this occur companies and their teams should ensure that s comprehensive process of action and recording is put in place for all member of the team. The HSE gives some excellent examples of this in the information shown in the HSE article above.”
