Respect and civility in the workplace is the foundation for a psychologically safe workplace. A respectful workplace values care, consideration, and dignity of others. Workplaces lacking in respect can result in high financial and emotional costs to employer, workers and communities. High levels of turnover, conflict, grievances, and low levels of morale, attendance, and productivity are often associated with workplaces where respect is not a core value. Preventing disrespectful behaviour begins with understanding the causes and taking action to create a respectful workplace where workers mental health is protected.
