For Your Team
People want to work for and do business with organizations that demonstrate Respect. Whether it is with co-workers, customers or suppliers respectful conduct is desired and expected in every interaction, however at times it is not always displayed.
Often Corporate Vision or Mission Statements include the word Respect however few organizations have been able to make the successful shift to enabling, empowering and equipping ALL employees, contractors and suppliers regardless of their position to consistently demonstrate respect as the core foundation in which all of their interactions are built upon.
For Your Organization
Not only are costs a significant reason that respect matters in the workplace; employers are also required by the Canadian Human Rights commission and Canada Labour Code to develop their own harassment policies and provide anti-harassment, bullying and discrimination training.
Employers can be held legally responsible for harassment, bullying and discrimination in their workplaces, and unless they can prove that they are making efforts to prevent these occurrences from happening, may well find themselves facing serious financial and legal consequences.
