At PSI, we live diversity and aspire to be known and recognised for an exemplary inclusion policy. The culture of respect is reflected in the behaviour of all PSI employees.
We recognise that no institution is safe from the violation of personal integrity - not even the PSI. Therefore, we want to do everything in our power to treat each other with respect. Respectful interaction means interaction free from discrimination, harassment, mobbing, threats, violence and abusive use of power. We want to prevent actions and statements that fall into these categories and, if they do occur, sanction them and end them professionally, prudently and effectively.
Tasks of line managers, human resources and confidential advisors
If you feel you have been treated unfairly, hurt or harassed, if you observe harassment, or if you have questions or problems, you can contact your line manager, Human Resources or one of the internal or external confidential advisors. Your manager and Human Resources have the right to act on their own if they consider the situation to be serious.
If you contact your line manager or Human Resources in confidence, they will look for appropriate solutions with your consent. If you decide to do so, the "Formal Procedure" will be initiated; then other persons will be informed and involved.
The internal and external confidential advisors will always treat your contact with them confidentially ("Confidential Procedure"). You can obtain comprehensive advice here. No actions or procedures follow from this. An exception to this rule exists in the case of danger to others or to oneself: Then the Confidential Advisors are released from confidentiality and will let you know.
Further information for PSI employees can be found here on the intranet.
