ESRC Festival of Social Science: Mandating Civility and Respect in The Workplace

Starts: 2 November 2011

ESRC UK Festival of Social Science

Mandating Civility and Respect in The Workplace

Wednesday 2nd November, 5-6pm (with a glass of wine) in the Music Room, Burgh House, Hampstead

An early evening seminar to launch the report Insight into ill-treatment in the workplace. The report summarises the results of a national survey and in-depth research in five case study organisation. Free copies of the report will be available for all participants. The seminar will focus on these key findings:

  • employees with disabilities, younger employees and GLB employees were all more likely to experience ill-treatment at work, holding other factors constant
  • in the workplaces with the heaviest concentrations of ill-treatment, employees with disabilities, LGB (particularly) and BME employees were more likely to be told to quit
  • LGB employees were far more likely to be singled out for violence
  • although gender was not a predictor of ill-treatment in the whole sample, the women who worked in hotspots with concentrations of ill-treatment were more likely than men in those workplaces to be unfairly treated, insulted and intimidated (but less likely to be threatened)

Burgh House is easily accessible, just moments from Hampstead Tube Station on the Northern Line and well within the Black Cab zone. It can be reached from central London in as little as 20 minutes.

This event is part of the annual ESRC Festival of Social Science.
