There are a number of ways in which WUR fosters a safe and inclusive work and study environment for its employees and students.The WUR Social Safety Code of Conduct subsequently provides a framework that offers guidance about how to confront others about undesirable behaviour and addresses enforcement and sanctions that are related to the violation of rules. The Relationships at Work Code of Conduct is related to the Social Safety Code of Conduct and specifically addresses personal relationships and friendships at work.
A safe and inclusive work and study environment demands an active contribution from everyone who works or studies at WUR. This not only concerns personal conduct, but also pertains to taking a defensive stance towards any form of undesirable behaviour.
WUR’s Social Safety Code of Conduct aims to foster a safe and inclusive work and study environment by:
- Providing an unambiguous definition of undesirable behaviour;
- Providing support for employees and students who confront others about violating the rules of conduct;
- Paying attention to the enforcement of the rules of conduct and the sanctions that are associated with the violation of these rules;
- Supporting the professional conduct of employees and students by explaining what the expectations of the organisation are.
