Civility and Respect: The Exception, Not the Rule, in the American Workplace
Pending SHRM and HRCI
Many American workplaces publicize core values to their employees and external stakeholders which usually include the core value of respect. The reality is that while these values are written on paper, they are not embedded in the culture of the organization. The American employee at all levels is suffering from extreme stress in the workplace due to high expectations, long hours, and wages. To add to those typical workplace challenges, many employees are suffering from stress due to being bullied by their boss, a behavior that is often lawful and tolerated by most organizations. In this program, Natasha Bowman discusses the harmful effects of workplace bullying on the American worker and makes the case as to why we must bring civility and respect back to the workplace.
