Practical and professional boundaries are not the same thing. Understanding the difference between them and implementing both is essential for everyone.
Whether these are with colleagues, customers or the general public, without them lines can become blurred. When this happens, we are at risk of upsetting, offending or hurting the people that we engage with.
A blur in boundaries can affect the organisations reputation as well as our own. Everyone needs to understand what their responsibilities are to ensure a harmonious and safe working environment.
