Dealing with conflict at work: A guide for people managers

The CIPD have produced a new guide following their recent Managing Conflict in the Modern Workplace report.  It is designed to cover the people management skills required for a manager to positively identify and manage conflict at work and thereby help them play their part in resolving conflict in the workplace rather than being part of the problem.

Mental Health at Work: Time to Take Ownership

BITC have used the data from a survey of over 4000 employees as the basis for this report which shows that although there are signs of increased awareness and positive action, it is not widespread or occurring fast enough.  To tackle this, the report includes suggestions on how to create positive, inclusive workplace cultures which help rather than harm employees’ mental health.  You can download the full report together with the Scottish Companion report by using the link in the title above.

Preventing sexual harassment at work: a guide for employers

The European Commission for Human Rights (EHRC) has recently published a short guide for employers outlining 7 steps that can be taken to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.  The short guide has been taken from their more detailed technical guidance, “Sexual harassment and harassment at work” which provides a comprehensive guide to the law and best practice to prevent and respond to harassment in the workplace.

University Mental Health Charter launched

The Charter was launched by Student Minds at the end of 2019.  Co-created with staff, students and researchers from over 200 higher education institutions throughout the UK, it provides a set of principles of good practice to help ensure the mental health needs of all students and staff are met.  The Office for Students has just awarded funding to develop the Charter Award Scheme which aims to recognise those universities that promote good mental health and demonstrate good practice.
