Thriving at Work: Contributing to a Culture of Respect

Thriving at Work: Contributing to a Culture of Respect

Time: 1 – 1:30 p.m.

Location: Event Centre, first floor

Stream: All-attendee session

Employees expect to be respected in the workplace — and for good reason. Respectful relationships are fundamental to achieving a healthy and positive environment, and are critical to achieving your professional goals.  An ethos of respect results in higher levels of engagement and satisfaction, stronger collaboration and increased productivity. But healthy and respectful workplaces don’t just happen — they are built through our collective contributions. In this all-attendee session, you’ll:

  • explore why respect in the workplace is critical to success;
  • consider the benefits of an inclusive and diverse workforce;
  • learn how to better understand colleagues and what respect and disrespect means to them; and
  • discover how to identify your role in supporting a healthy and respectful workplace culture.

Session Tip:

Consider your role when it comes to respect. We are all responsible for contributing to the well-being of our work environment, and you play an important part in creating and maintaining a healthy and respectful workplace.
