Hi guys. I would appreciate any advice on ideas to implement across the board. I have taken over a HR role and within a couple of weeks have identified an accepted "banter" culture and attitude by a few members that appears to be accepted behaviour. Comments such as "is he or she a f...g retard or something?" are common" in the office and appear to be widely accepted by the staff and senior management. Anything else appears to be seen as "soft".
As their new HR Manager, I would like to instil a culture of tolerance, kindness, inclusion and respect - full stop. I am calling a management meeting to discuss this at the top as it is full culture change - does anyone else have experience with this at its extreme and ideas for drilling out such a major culture change across the organisation?
