Approach to addressing and preventing bullying Winston has a zero tolerance policy towards any incident of bullying or harassment. All reports that are received are taken very seriously, fully investigated and any violation of our policy against bullying will be treated as a serious disciplinary infraction. To the extent that it is possible, we do attempt to keep all reports of bullying confidential, to protect those who report such actions. This applies to bullying in person as well as online through various social media applications.
