The Respectful Workplace Initiative
Facilitate the process of all employees practicing civil and respectful behaviors in the workplace.
Our approach to behavioral risk prevention, management, and mitigation includes a comprehensive array of services under the umbrella of “The Respectful Workplace Initiative.”
There is a compelling business case to promoting civility and respect in the workplace. In 2015 alone, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission “recovered $164.5 million for workers alleging harassment – and these direct costs are just the tip of the iceberg” (EEOC, 2016). Federal agencies and courts, along with states and municipalities have made it clear that maintaining a safe workplace is essential for all employees.
Maintaining a culture that is diverse, inclusive, and respectful has been shown to produce various benefits including:

The facilitator was very knowledgeable – and communicated the content in an interesting and engaging way.
