Fair organizations visibly demonstrate respect in the workplace. Respect in the workplace is not based on fear and awe. Instead, a fair workplace sees and accepts people as they are and is aware of each person's unique individuality. That doesn't mean individual rights and responsibilities trump group rights and responsibilities. It's not an "either/or" proposition - it means finding the proper balance on a case-by-case basis.
Fair and respectful workplaces also have effective complaint and dispute resolution systems. When structured properly these systems usually prove to be more cost effective, especially when compared with the costs of prolonged workplace absences or formal complaints with external tribunals. Being pro-active instead of reactive to workplace conflicts is not only cheaper, it adds value to your organizational reputation. Studies on ethical organizations show fair and respectful workplaces have higher levels of employee morale and greater productivity.
Good organizations plan their strategy before executing it. They make sure sufficient time has been afforded to all the relevant stakeholders. They also understand the value of using an independent facilitator. It takes a special set of skills and experience to help organizations deal effectively with the barriers that can emerge during the facilitation of a strategic planning process.
Bottom line: having a smart and healthy workplace environment is all about how you treat people in your organization. If our approach to managing conflict, strategic planning, human resources and workplace relationships is the kind needed in your organization, we invite you to contact us.
