Workplace Civility-Respectful Habits Lead to Increased Productivity, Decreased Liability
Duration: 60 Minutes
What exactly is workplace civility and how does it affect productivity and safety on the job? Civility is more than being polite. It is about being respectful even when one disagrees, it is about listening intently even when there seems to be no reason, it is about every person's voice being heard and each person demonstrating and also receiving a high level of respect. Civility requires behavior that promotes mutual respect at work. Civility also requires self-realization of one's own actions and reactions and how they affect our co-workers.
