Harassment and bullying issues are often hard to identify, difficult to deal with, and left unchecked, they can cause major disruption to managers and their teams. Some of the more common effects include: poor morale and employee relations; reduced performance and productivity; absenteeism and loss of talent; damage to the organisations reputation and loss of respect for managers. We can help you develop appropriate policies to deal with any issues of bullying and harassment and train staff to recognise what is and is not acceptable behaviour at work and what to do about it.

The objectives of disability impact assessments are, to identify if a policy or action can be done in such a way that it will have a positive impact on disabled people, to eliminate or reduce any negative impact on disabled people, to identify if there is any impact on disabled people as a result of the policy or action, to promote areas of existing good practice in disability equality. We can help you develop and conduct the assessment activity and evaluate the results. We help you work with relevant groups with specific knowledge and gain first hand experience of a variety of disability issues for yourself to see the impact specific actions can have.
