Dignity in the workplace

r Download print version here


A core employment value is the commitment to ensuring that each individual is guaranteed a working environment, which recognises that individual's right to be treated with dignity both by management and work colleagues.

This approach is a positive emphasis on the importance of each individual and the contribution s/he makes to the success of the workplace. It guarantees the optimal working conditions that allow individuals to freely maximise their role in the workforce. Sound management ethos is based on providing leadership that encourages individuals in this regard. This is best achieved through the creation and maintenance of a positive working environment.
Integral to this employment value and in particular to the principle of mutual respect is the commitment to provide a workplace free from bullying.
