Bullying and harassment - in your company?

Sexual harassment is still an issue in the maritime industry – lately also documented in shipping in Sweden. Bullying and harassment is not acceptable - also not in maritime industry.

We all have a responsibility to work against bullying and harassment on board whether it’s because of race, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age.

A culture that accepts bullying and harassment may also accept other things. Is that your company? – Think how your performance could be improved if you knew that your employees didn’t have to fear or experience such things.

There are tools aimed at the industry and if you are not confident how to address these topics we would be happy to assist. You can do something about it!
