Acceptable Behaviour in the workplace
The University expects the highest standard of behaviour from its staff and for all staff to be aware of how their behaviour can affect others. To achieve this standard it is the general expectation that all members of staff, including others who may be working on behalf of the University, will behave in an acceptable manner - treating others with courtesy, respect and consideration – and conducting themselves professionally when interacting with members of the University community. The Acceptable Behaviour policy provides a framework within which instances of unacceptable behaviour can be addressed and resolved.

Professional Behaviours provide guidance on key and valued behaviours that should be observed when interacting with and influencing others, or when managing colleagues. The Professional Behaviours are also available as a document that can be downloaded to form the basis of meetings held under this policy.
