Do you have questions or complaints about undesirable behavior or integrity?
As an employee of Stud or as a temporary worker for Stud you can contact our external person of confidence, Marianne Langhout.
It is important that you enjoy going to work as an employee of Stud or as a temporary worker for Stud. Fortunately, in most cases, employees or temporary workers of Stud are happy.
Yet it can happen that something unpleasant happens or that there is a situation that you do not feel comfortable with and that you want to talk to someone about.
Because Stud is a temporary employment agency, it can therefore be a situation within Stud itself, but also a situation at the organization where you work as a temporary worker. Usually, this organization has its own confidential advisor. You then have the choice to go to the person of confidence of that organization or to the confidential adviser of Stud.
When to go to the person of confidence?
It is always about undesirable behavior; that is, behavior that you experience as undesirable or forced. This is not about how the perpetrator means it, but about how the recipient experiences it. However harmless it may seem, it can have serious consequences for the recipient.
Unwanted behavior can occur in various forms; verbal, non-verbal and physical.
A few examples:
- (Sexual) intimidation: this can be, for example, ambiguous jokes, pawing, prolonged staring or spying;
- Bullying: bullying or exclusion, not only in the workplace but also via the internet. Bullying language but also ignoring someone, excluding someone;
- Discrimination: to discriminate against someone on the basis of sexual orientation, age, origin, sex or religion. In short, all cases where a difference is made between people while this is not allowed;
- Aggression: concerns physical but also verbal violence. Intimidating behavior, such as being close to someone, can also sometimes come across as very aggressive;
- Integrity: you can think of fraud, corruption or theft. If you have heard or seen something which seems not alright, you can discuss this with the person of confidence.
What does a person of confidence do?
A person of confidence provides assistance, the listening ear. You can share your story and you can ask questions. The counselor can then help you find a solution, prepare a difficult meeting with you or, if necessary, also accompany you for a meeting with your supervisor.
A counselor will therefore not solve the problem for you, but will work with you to see how you can proceed and solve the problem. You always remain in control.
You can always contact the person of confidence; you do not need permission from your supervisor for this. You can discuss questions and problems in all openness and confidentiality.
The person of confidence does not report to anyone; conversations are always confidential unless you give your explicit permission to discuss your story with a third party.
