What is it?

A code of conduct and zero tolerance policy provide clear guidelines on the behaviours expected of staff and management. They will enable you to foster positive interactions and create a safe and healthy workplace.

This tool will help you

  • Develop a code of conduct

    A code of conduct describes expected behaviours and holds each individual accountable for their actions based on values and guiding principles.

  • Write a zero tolerance policy

    A zero tolerance policy enables your company to proactively prevent and manage employee behaviour that is illegal, inappropriate, or contrary to your organization’s code of conduct, while giving employees the means to express themselves.
