Respectful Treatment, Preventing Harassment and Workplace Bullying
We value and develop each other in a culture of respect, promoting a positive work environment.
We work collaboratively, interacting in ways that promote mutual trust and respect. This means acting professionally, speaking openly and respectfully with others and supporting each other wherever we can. In this way, each of us helps shape and strengthen our culture of excellence and integrity. A workplace that energizes and supports everyone’s best efforts is a winning workplace.
We maintain a respectful workplace by:
QUESTION: My new supervisor is very inquisitive and outgoing. She has been asking me probing questions about my personal life, which makes me uncomfortable. She may think she’s being friendly, but her conversation topics make me feel awkward. I asked her to stop, but she said I’m too uptight and wondered out loud if I’m a good fit for the team. I don’t want to get off to a bad start with my supervisor, but she is making me nervous. What can I do?
ANSWER: This supervisor’s conduct is unwelcome and unacceptable, and has no place at Clarios. If you feel comfortable doing so, let your supervisor know how she makes you feel and ask her to stop once and for all. If you prefer not to confront your supervisor again, you can speak to a more senior manager or your HR representative, or contact the Integrity Helpline. Any of these options will enable us to help resolve the issue. You will be protected from any retaliation.
