Module one: A respectful and inclusive workplace

The work environment affects the way individuals relate to each other, and those relationships in turn affect productivity and results. Employees perform better when they are treated with respect and feel included.

In this module, participants will learn:

  • what is a respectful workplace,
  • the benefits of a respectful and inclusive workplace,
  • the rights and responsibilities of employers, employees, and unions as they relate to human rights in the workplace, and
  • strategies for creating a positive work environment.
