A new guide has been published to help employers deal properly with transgender staff. It’s all about creating a more inclusive culture.
As well as helping employers recruit and retain transgender staff, the guide sheds light on the day-to-day management of transgender issues.
One of the really interesting sections is about handling situations in which an existing employee embarks on a transition. Employers may not know immediately how best to support that employee, including how to communicate what’s happening. Nor will employers necessarily have the right systems and policies in place to deal with the sorts of situations that may crop up.
It’s a guide that is well worth every employer reading.
