Building a Culture of Civility at Work - Promoting Respect, Trust and Integrity to Enhance Performance, Productivity and Profitability
More than money, position or title, the way people are treated and the "climate" of working environments, are the primary factors influencing employee loyalty, performance and productivity. Evidence-based studies show that when human interactions in the work place are devoid of respect, trust, kindness and consideration the result is decreased work effort, poor performance quality and reduced time at work. In addition, incivility experienced in the workplace undermines overall commitment to the organization and ultimately profitability. Civility embraces the fundamental principles of respect, self-restraint and personal responsibility (P.M. Forni, 2002) and involves consistent, mindful, everyday behaviors that recognize the humanity and worth in every human being, regardless of race, creed or station in life. Every company or organization, has a culture or way of doing business, both internally and externally. Creating a culture of civility can significantly increase performance, productivity, aesthetics and climate and therefore enhance bottom line. This webinar will introduce the meaning of civility and why it is relevant to quality performance and productivity in the workplace.
Why should you attend: No longer is it productive to know and interact with only the people in your area of the office, on your shift or on your team. Have you been yearning to break out from that familiar circle of colleagues and connections where you re-live the same experiences and share the same information over and over?
