Lightening Talk Session: What Happens When We Treat Conflict as Normal

Imagine if we normalized workplace conflict. What would happen if all the stakeholders involved collaborated to address disrespectful behaviour and harassment? The Yukon Government is three years into a Respectful Workplace Policy that was developed collaboratively by HR, management, two unions and the Aboriginal Employees’ Forum. The approach is based on alternative dispute resolution practices. Its aim is to change the way we address the issues that arise in a diverse workforce. Learn about new ways to restore workplace relationships.
