Olivia HandeHead of Investigations
Siobhan O’Donoghue-OlofssonSenior Consultant
Siobhan O’Donoghue-Olofsson Organisational Psychologist, brings her special skills which, when combined with the Dignity at Work expertise Bernadette and Olivia have, permit us to address major employee engagement issues creating new success stories for organisations.
Clients coming to us apart from those seeking training are experiencing difficult employee relations. Our clients, many of whom come to us by referral, rely on our integrity and confidentiality and therefore it is our policy not to publish client information identifying them as having had employee relations difficulties. We seek feedback from clients, to ensure we learn from each and every project, but they are secure in the knowledge they will not be identified.
Both the parties involved and ourselves in HR were very happy with the mediation process. Both parties felt they had been heard and for us the result is that two very senior executives are working together effectively and for the better of the business.
An International Financial Institution,HR & Employee Relations
Bernadette’s prompt investigation was conducted with sensitivity and total confidentiality within the store. Her report brought a clarity of thought to the situation that I have not previously seen in such documents and it meant our way forward was clear.
A Retail Department Store Chain,Head of Group HR
The customised training we received in conducting workplace investigations was superb. Bernadette worked with us to ensure that the aspects various members of our team wanted to focus on were covered while still ensuring coherence for all other attendees. After the training we in HR are entirely confident that the managers are now investigation-ready. For ourselves, we are also informed in terms of managing the processes.
An International Telecoms Organisation,Win-win! HR, UK and Ireland
Bernadette had our full attention from the start with her [anonymous] descriptions of real cases. It meant that we had actual situations in mind when considering the definitions of bullying and harassment. The group-work applying the definitions to those situations was remarkable in clarifying things.
A Government Department,A participant in Contact Person Training
We had a very difficult employee who took up almost 40% of HR time! She had a disability and relations between herself and the other staff in her store broke down to the point where they refused to provide the assistance they had previously given her. At the same time as this reasonable accommodation issue he lodged a number of grievances about his conditions and complaints of bullying against others. We were anxious to be fair to the employee and avoid creating equality issues as much as possible. The help desk support we received was wonderful since each time we received yet another email the hole we were looking at got bigger. We didn’t have the expertise to handle it but Beo’s helpdesk guided us through each step.
