Thriving at Work: Contributing to a Culture of Respect

We all want to be respected in all aspects of our lives: at home, in our relationships and at work. Respectful relationships are fundamental to achieving a healthy and positive workplace environment and critical to achieving our professional goals. Employees who feel respected demonstrate higher levels of engagement and satisfaction, stronger collaboration and increased productivity. Healthy and respectful workplaces don’t just happen; they are built and we each play a role. In this session, you will:

  • 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 both respect and disrespect means to them; and
  • Discover how to identify your role in supporting a healthy and respectful workplace culture.
