Andrea Adams, broadcaster and journalist, was the first person to recognise the significance of Workplace Bullying, and her book entitled ‘Bullying at Work’ published by Virago in 1992, remains a landmark in this field.
Andrea Adams helped many people address the issues of Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination in the Workplace and following her death in 1995 a charitable Trust was founded in her name to continue to build on the work she had started. The Andrea Adams Trust worked for fourteen years to raise awareness of Workplace Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination
Our core business is to help organisations achieve Respect at Work. As specialists in Bullying, Harassment and Respect we help organisations achieve this through:
- Awareness training for all levels within organisations of what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate workplace behaviour. Recognition is the first step to enabling employees to appropriately challenge behaviours.
- Providing practical tools through our training interventions to challenge and manage workplace behaviour.
- Provide advice and guidance on the systems and processes which need to be in place, to not only drive out inappropriate
behaviours,but to secure positive engagement and behaviours.
- Bespoke consultancy, diagnosing what is happening and recommending resolutions.
