An Introduction to Respect in the Workplace

2 hour instructor-led workshop
For employees


Working in a Harassment-Free Environment

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 2 hour training program provides a strong foundation for workplace respect and civility as well as easy to implement strategies to begin building more respectful workplaces today.

There is a pressing need to develop more respectful and harassment-free work environments in Canada
