Workplaces with cultures that inspire fear of speaking up are conducive to harassment and intimidation. Given the various forms in which improper behaviour in an occupational setting can take shape, harassment continues to disrupt organizations in which allegations of misconduct — sexual or otherwise — have surfaced.
Compliance with workplace-safety legislation and the Human Rights Code are not the only compelling reasons for creating harassment-free workplaces. There is also a wide body of evidence showing that psychologically healthy companies have better bottom lines and exert a positive influence on employees’ physical and mental health, motivation and productivity.
