Connecting With Each Other!
“We recognize and respect everyone as a unique individual.”
We pride ourselves in having a diverse workplace where each employee is expected to treat others with dignity, courtesy and respect. At Helpers.ie, we practice good judgment by making decisions that are right for our Company, our communities and each other.
We begin by hiring, promoting and compensating employees based on their ability to perform the job, without regard to age, race, color, national origin, physical or mental disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, condition of pregnancy, genetic information, or any other legally protected characteristic. We do not tolerate employment discrimination in the workplace.
“We encourage people to treat others the way they want to be treated themselves.”
We strive to create a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. We don’t tolerate bullying, abuse or any behavior that interferes with someone’s work or that creates a hostile work environment.
No matter what form harassment takes – whether physical, sexual, verbal or non-verbal, in person, via email, over the phone or on the Internet – it is unacceptable. We all have a responsibility to know what harassment is so we can report it promptly when we see it.
Harassment is offensive conduct that interferes with an employee’s ability to work. Harassment can involve sexual conduct or references to a personal characteristic. Examples include racial slurs, off-color jokes and unwelcome sexual advances.
Harassment can occur between members of the same sex or the opposite sex; between vendors, contractors, or employees; and in the office or at off-site work-related events.
We speak up if we suspect discrimination, harassment or other inappropriate workplace behavior. By providing this information to our manager, Human Resources, we help ensure these matters are addressed quickly and we promote the integrity of our workplace.
Solicitation & Distribution
To ensure we respect employees’ diverse viewpoints, and provide a harmonious work environment that avoids annoyance or improper influence, we limit solicitation and distribution of materials on Helpers.ie property.
This means you should not broadly solicit or support non-approved causes or organizations on Company properties or use Company resources to do so. This includes distributing any non-approved material during work, or use our workspaces or Helpers.ie internal email network for non-approved material.
In particular, managers should not ask their employees to contribute to charitable causes to avoid creating a sense of obligation. Employees wishing to make grants or donations to any non-profit organization must do so with no obligation towards it whatsoever.
We all share responsibility for ensuring that Helpers.ie is a safe and secure place to work. This means we should be aware of our surroundings and participate in emergency preparedness. We all must follow posted safety procedures and comply with all Company policies and applicable Irish laws. We report injuries and unsafe conditions in a timely manner to our managers. We don’t tolerate workplace violence of any kind, including intimidation or threats. If you see inappropriate behavior, you must speak up immediately.
Drugs & Alcohol
Helpers.ie is a drug-free workplace. While at work or while attending business related activities on or off the Company premises, you are strictly prohibited from manufacturing, possessing, storing, distributing, transferring, purchasing, selling, using or being under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.
From time to time, Helpers.ie may sponsor events where alcohol is served. You are always expected to drink responsibly at Company-sponsored events or choose not to consume alcohol. If you need assistance with a drug or alcohol problem please talk to the manager.
