What constitutes workplace respect?
For a start, each employee knowing their dignity is recognised. This applies to owed respect and earned respect (performance standards)
Managers knowing how to convey respect in the workplace. All members of a workplace are entitled to a baseline of owed respect. Then there are situations where individual performance levels are such that it is given to the standards achieved by the employee(s) concerned. In other words, all employees are entitled to owed respect. In turn, all employees who meet or exceed performance standards deserve earned respect.
Respect throughout the organisation is likely to shape the way employees treat customers, industry partners and the general community.
Finally, a manager’s role is placing the right people in positions and coordinating day to day operations and building a workplace of respect that allows employees – and, as a result their companies – to become the best possible possible versions of themselves.
