The Report App is an independent information and reporting point whereby an organization immediately clarifies her point of view towards unwanted manners in the workplace.
Can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play, where also without a login you can get an impression of how the information about unwanted manners is presented. However, for using the Report App a unique login is required which can only be obtained if the app is offered by the employer. The employer takes a subscription for its employees, whereby the organization offers information and instructions about transgressive behavior, in a new and active way. With the secured app’s dashboard the assigned counsellor / professional can act internally or externally on the report.
About aggression / violence, discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment
Subjects that are mentioned within this theme are when is it unwanted behavior, what does the grey area mean and can I make a report as a bystander. The app mostly uses images and videos (tutorial and storytelling), the written explanations are limited.
Why is it important and how do I use it, can I also use it as a diary.
When do I make a report, can I also do that as a bystander and not only as a victim, what happens with my report and where does it end up, what can I expect having done a report, what is the desired effect of reporting unwanted behavior, can I make a report directly to the counselor of my choice or to the complaints committee. Also an explanation about how early reporting can ensure de-escalation will be explained.
Every company that offers the Report App to its employees can offer its policy within the app. These documents will be uploaded by AWH on request of the Foundation. Furthermore the counselor / professional can introduces itself to the employees within the app, preferable by means of a video. The visibility of the counselor / professional is an important element when we speak of a low threshold.
The Report App offers the user a very safe surrounding for monitoring the behavior which is experienced as unwanted. After having received the unique login code, the user can create a password, a safety code and a his/ her profile. You can compare it with a banking App. The user determines how and when he or she is contacted. The complainant is always in control of the report.The data storage of the Report App occurs to the highest standards. The App’s producer is certified for these standards. This information can be acquired via the contact page of AWH.
The internal or external counselor / professional receives the report via the organizations dashboard. To keep a low threshold for filing a report, the Report App offers several options. A good example is that the complainant can chose which counselor receives the report, which means that this report is only accessible for that specific counselor. Furthermore there is the possibility to report directly to the companies complaints committee.
Based on the reports a counselor can make periodically depersonalized analysis reports of the unwanted manners within the company. This can be an analysis per department, function, type of unwanted behavior, etc. This than can be used for the annual reporting / advice the counselor has to make to inform the company’s management team or board of directors. This is a very qualitative risk analysis for the psychosocial workload policy.
