Code of Conduct for Virtual Meetings
Harassment-wise, the virtual meeting has become the digital equivalent to the holiday office party.
Far from eliminating workplace harassment, telecommuting has only caused it to morph into digital forms. As a result, employers need to tweak their harassment policies to deal with the new face of harassment. The virtual meeting, in particular, has become the digital age version of the holiday office party where employees feel emboldened to do and say things they wouldn’t dream of doing and saying to co-workers in-person. How do you crack down on this behaviour? The starting point is to implement a Code of Conduct Virtual Meetings. Here’s a template you can adapt.
