BUILDING A RESPECTFUL WORKPLACE WHERE EVERYONE FEELS SAFE AND INCLUDED.

As a leader, have you considered the role that respect plays in shaping your workplace culture?

Respect isn’t just about following policies and procedures to process disrespectful behaviour.
Respect is proactively demonstrating you care about your team members’ mental health and well-being by creating a healthy environment where everyone feels safe, supported, included and empowered to do their best work. By prioritising respect, you’re sending a message that you value your team.
People want to stay with an organisation that values them.

Does maintaining a RESPECTFUL WORKPLACE CULTURE seem an impossible task?

n a complex and rapidly changing environment, improving respect at work to shift organisational culture is a key workforce imperative. It maintains and sustains a healthy culture while increasing productivity and performance.
It creates a climate of respectful relationships and inclusive behaviours, while building psychological safety and trust. More than that, it’s essential for the mental wellbeing of your team.
When your team isn’t aligned, managing acts of disrespect is stressful, costly and time consuming.

Disrespectful workplace behaviour contributes to:

  • Team members leaving because they don’t feel seen, heard, understood, supported, valued and appreciated
  • Team friction caused by ineffective communication from uncaring leaders and managers, so team members don’t feel safe speaking up
  • Team members’ wellbeing being impacted by psychologically harmful behaviours
  • A lack of productivity caused by a lack of empathy, fixed mindsets and organisational silos
  • An increase in psychosocial risks and hazards.
