Promoting Equality in the Workplace
NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde is committed to promoting equalities in the workplace and providing a working environment which is free from harassment or discrimination of any nature.
In order to ensure equal opportunities are in existence, the organisation is required by law to gather information on its workforce in terms of such things as gender, age, ethnic background, disability, sexual orientation and religion. This information is also used to ensure that there are no discrepancies in relation to issues such as training, promotion and misconduct investigations.
As well as complying with the law, the information collected can then be used to plan around the specific needs of the workforce and to assess whether or not the NHS is seen as an attractive employer to various sections of society.

Bullying & Harassment
NHSGGC recognises that it has a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that staff are not subjected to inappropriate or discriminatory behavior which may not only affect their performance but more importantly their health and wellbeing.

Are We Positive About Disability?
We want NHSGGC to be a place where disabled staff feel able to tell their managers about their impairment and where managers understand the benefits of a workplace that supports disabled people.
We know from our staff surveys that disabled staff who have explained their situation to their manager and received appropriate support, are among the happiest in the workforce. By contrast, those who haven't are among the least content.
As part of our new Release Potential campaign, we would like to talk to disabled staff about how things can be improved. For example:
What support would you like from your manager?
Do you think NHSGGC is positive about disability?
What has helped you to stay at work?
What would make things better?
