Respecting co-workers seems pretty simple on the surface: be kind and courteous. Don't harass or discriminate. But in reality, it's more than just showing common courtesy and avoiding lawsuits.
Respect for People One Contact at a Time explains how a culture of respect means recognizing the value of coworkers, helping them feel welcome, and showing that their contributions matter. The program helps employees:
- Appreciate the importance of respect for morale and productivity
- Welcome differences
- Promote a culture of respect at work, from building personal relationships and practicing the Golden Rule to listening, communication, and conflict resolution.
