Bullying and harassment: how Acas can help


We can visit your organisation to help you understand what needs to be done to address a range of issues related to bullying and harassment and then work with you to develop practical solutions.

Bullying and harassment are often difficult to define because they are based on individual perceptions. But we can help you untangle the web.

We can work with you to:

  • identify the boundaries of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in the workplace
  • diagnose the nature and extent of the problem
  • create an action plan to deal with issues
  • raise staff awareness regarding bullying and harassment
  • explain how you can use mediation in your workplace
  • mediate in employee grievances
  • mediate in conflict between colleagues or teams

We can provide training on:

  • dealing effectively with bullying and harassment
  • raising awareness of cultural issues in the workplace
  • how you can use mediation in your workplace
  • managing grievances
  • conducting investigations 
  • our accredited Certificated in Internal Workplace Mediation standard (CIWM)
