A. Announcement



1) Webinar on Respectful Workplace

Respect in the workplace is fundamental for creating a healthy and productive work environment where employees can contribute their best. A positive environment means reduced turnover and absenteeism, enhanced engagement, increased innovation, and high job satisfaction. In a competitive global employment scene, a positive work environment is a key consideration for high-value job seekers. Employers may accomplish a respectful workplace by promoting conducive corporate values and setting up procedures to implement corrective measures. A respectful workplace is one that is free from bullying, discrimination, harassment, and victimization. This talk will explain each of these attributes in a modern cultural context. Creating a respectful workplace is incumbent upon both the employees and the organization. Employees may bring their own biases shaped by their upbringing, and prevalent environment whereas organizational culture may foster prejudices. This talk will enable the general employees to tune their own behavior. In addition, this talk will alert the organizational leaders about the adequacy of existing policies in delivering a respectful workplace.
