Culture Shift, a Manchester based tech firm that has created a platform for people to confidentially and safely report workplace harassment, is now offering 23,500 Midlands based NHS employees access to its reporting platform.
‘Tech-for-good’ developer Culture Shift has partnered with NHS Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Academy to give staff improved opportunities for reporting experiences of discrimination, bullying, harassment and victimisation in the workplace.
Launching in September 2021, the online platform will provide NHS staff with a safe space to disclose incidents – anonymously or non-anonymously – and is set to enhance LLR’s existing approach to creating a safe workplace free from bullying, harassment and discrimination.
The reporting platform will be available to approximately 17,800 staff at NHS University Hospitals of Leicester, 5,500 at Leicestershire Partnership Trust and 278 across LLR Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Culture Shift was first founded in 2018 following a string of stories about bullying and harassment in high-profile businesses across the UK.
Jen Mulloy, Equality and Inclusion Business Partner at NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU, said: “The Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Academy is pleased to be working with Culture Shift to launch the LLR YourVoice report and support tool.
“The YourVoice report and support tool will enhance our existing approach to creating a safe workplace free from bullying, harassment and discrimination.”
NHS leaders will be given access to the platform’s data analytics dashboard to gain actionable insights and identify patterns of behaviour in their workplace.
The reporting platform will also give key stakeholders access to workshops to ensure they have the knowledge needed to implement it successfully and develop a bespoke strategy, policy review and communications plan off the back of it.
