Wairoa District Council staff stood united in their recognition of anti-bullying.
On Friday, staff acknowledged the national pink shirt anti bullying campaign and the impact of bullying on staff and the workplace.
Interim chief executive Kitea Tipuna said Council staff, like many other workplaces, are often on the receiving end of bullying behaviour from members of the public. This can occur over the phone, email, at the front desk, face to face and on social media.
It can even spill over into staff members private lives.
“Council staff face unacceptable behaviour from some members of our community. Together our staff are standing united and sharing the message that it is simply not acceptable to be bullied - at any level.”
