The clearest evidence of respect in the workplace can be found in productive, creative employees who share an awareness and appreciation of each other. When a workplace is lacking in respect, the signs can be destructive: high levels of turnover, conflict, and grievances, low levels of morale, attendance, and productivity. This workshop takes a very human approach to the issue of respect, and will provide participants with the tools they need to create and maintain a respectful workplace.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to do the following:
- Understand the legal definitions of the terms discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, and abuse of authority.
- Challenge impertinent behaviour in a respectful manner.
- Comprehend the legal requirements each individual has to follow, as per human rights legislation.
- Bring forward a complaint according to the principles and policies of their organization.
