A Royal Suspension: For some of us, the recent festivities included watching the Queen’s speech on December 25th.
However in one workplace, the Queen creates unhappy memories…
A London Underground driver was accused of creating a hostile work environment by displaying a poster of the Queen in a shared area. As a result, a heated row between colleagues took place and one employee was suspended from work.
Personal taste is very subjective and care must be taken when posters are displayed in a shared – or public – space.
“We recommend that communication to everyone using the premises should take place, explain the purpose of the poster, such as for Health & Safety reasons,” advises Matthew from Consensus HR. “Employees should be informed of company policy to prevent one person’s personal taste from affecting others. This will help avoid hostile working environments from developing.”
Relatively small steps can be taken which ultimately help employees’ satisfaction and production.
