Rather than focus on the negative aspects of workplaces such as bullying, harassment and discrimination, this program seeks to focus on the positive aspects of building a workplace culture that values respect, dignity and the rights of all employees. By understanding what a respectful workplace looks like, you can explore how best to instil this culture and behaviour in your own organisation.
