You should always be inclusive, collaborative and supportive. You should be aware of the impact your actions can have on others and treat everyone equally and with respect.
Always make yourself aware of relevant cultural considerations and demonstrate respect when working with colleagues from other cultural backgrounds or travelling to different locations.
It’s also important to support your colleagues to speak up if they believe they are experiencing harassment or bullying. If you witness this behaviour, you have a responsibility to speak up.
Together, you and your line leader are responsible for ensuring that you:
- are clear on what is required of you in your job;
- work in a trustful and collaborative way with others;
- are treated fairly, with respect and care;
- value individual differences within your team.
Where local laws conflict with our standards, leaders need to provide clear instructions regarding acceptable behaviours and the application of laws. In some cases, laws may take precedence over our standards.
