Many employees experience difficulties filing a complaint of unwanted or transgressive behavior in the workplace. This is one of the main reasons why a report is not being received by a confidential counsellor. Practice shows that documenting the experiences of unwanted behavior by an employee often doesn't happen. From research we know that many employees are often not well informed about what can be considered as unwanted behavior and how, when and to whom they can report in a safe way, which ensures the complaint is being handled in a timely manner. Taking a clear stance against workplace harassment as an organizations is now possible with the Report App of AWH.
With the information that is offered in a new and fresh way we create not only awareness, but also resilience. We’d love to see people think about their personal and professional boundaries in their behavior within the grey area. The offered information within the app has a preventive effect. This information is ‘vivid’, this means it is constantly moving and new knowledge and insights are shared.
By offering the option of a logbook with a secured surrounding, employees will start using it. The input can’t be ‘lying around’. Furthermore retaining a logbook can be very important if we speak about burden of proof. But mainly it’s also a supporting tool in the building towards making a report. The encouragement for making the report, to stop the unwanted behavior, without fear.
How and with who the report is done, is determined by the complainant. He or she is always in control of the report. The secured App’s dashboard creates an overview, only for assigned the counselor / professional. At a glance there is an overview of new, open and resolved reports.
The Report App is available in all necessary languages.
The employer makkes Report available for every employee as part of preventing psychosocial workload. Every employee is asked to download this independent information and reporting point. With this smartphone app the employer actively offers information and instructions about unwanted manners in the workplace.
Demonstrations of the Report App can be requested via the contact page of AWH.
During this presentation also the communication advice and possibilities on how to introduce the Report App will be shown. The employees abd counselors who need help finding their way will not be forgotten, this Foundation will assist them.
