Winrock is committed to preventing workplace violence and to maintaining a safe work environment. Winrock has adopted the following policy to address intimidation, harassment or other threats of or actual violence that may occur onsite or offsite during work-related activities.

For the purpose of this policy, “workplace violence” is defined as including, but not limited to:

Prohibited Conduct

Winrock treats threats coming from an abusive personal relationship as it does other forms of violence.

Take Action:

Indirect or direct threats of violence, incidents of actual violence, and suspicious individuals or activities should be reported as soon as possible to those channels identified in the Reporting Policy, and/or the Security Focal Point or Global Safety and Security.  It is important that Winrock is made aware of any potential danger in the workplace as early as possible to ensure proper measures can be implemented to enhance employee safety and security. 

When reporting a threat or incident of violence, employees should be as specific and detailed as possible. Employees should not place themselves in peril, nor should they attempt to intercede during an incident.

Employees should promptly inform the HR Lead or HR Manager of any protective or restraining order that they have obtained that lists the workplace as a protected area.  

Employees are encouraged to report safety concerns about intimate partner violence. Winrock will not retaliate against employees making good-faith reports. Winrock is committed to supporting victims of intimate partner violence by providing referrals to Winrock’s employee assistance program and community resources and providing time off for reasons related to intimate partner violence.
