A Safe Space To Talk at Work

A Safe Space To Talk at Work

As the world continues to settle into hybrid working and staff navigate communications between virtual work and being in the office, staff wellbeing has continued to remain in focus alongside protecting productivity and company reputation. Which is why organisations need to stay on top of any issues among staff, address them and ensure staff feel they have a safe space to bring anything to their management’s attention.

Meanwhile, it’s important to note that staff often feel reluctant about bringing issues to the forefront as it can create a negative perception, bring unwelcome attention to themselves, or may create tensions between other colleagues.

In response to the above,  Edtesa Reporting provides a safe, anonymous communication channel for staff. This allows them to voice their concerns through an SMS or online form. This, in turn alerts the company through an email, after which an anonymous two-way conversation can start.

Protecting Productivity and Reducing Risk

Anonymous reporting enables staff to feel less vulnerable and provides a safe place to share concerns which enhances their sense of being heard in the workplace.

This form of communication helps to counter any potential build-up of negativity, resentment and frustration in the workplace, which can also impact on productivity and an organisation’s reputation. Anonymous reporting encourages a wider number of people to come forward about concerns, which also reduces risk to a company.  

Examples of the types of incidents that Edtesa Reporting can help staff to address:

  • Any threats of violence by a member of staff
  • Racist incidents
  • Sexual harassment
  • Hate Speech
  • Customers receiving poor treatment
  • Any incidents of bullying by members of staff
  • Abusive language
  • Possession of drugs
  • Stealing

By providing an anonymous communication channel, a company builds a sense of trust among staff, while the company benefits by receiving important information about what is happening in their organisation. This can result in preventing any damage to the company further down the road.
