In the event an employee feels their issue has not been taken seriously or if they wish to confide with a non-Company affiliated official, they may contact the Ombudsman.
The Ombuds works as a third party administrator who helps employees resolve their issues by providing support, information or other resources that may be available to them. An ombudsman can not identify the employees or issues they have to any official except those with the utmost authority. Ombuds can help solve issues before they become legal problems through problem solving, open discussion and mediation.
The contact information for the Ombuds is in the notice area of your break room.
