Civility Toolkit

When civility and respect are the guiding principles for conflict management, employees can thrive and know that their own individual contributions are valued. In such a workplace climate, all employees can creatively and cooperatively contribute from their own diverse perspectives. For this reason, civility is a proactive behavior that can reduce concerns about discrimination. It can enhance job satisfaction, productivity and employee retention.

A Civility Toolkit contains tips, strategies and other helpful ideas.

EOO is available to facilitate civility workshops upon request. Please contact an equal opportunity associate.
