Respect At Work
Why emphasize respect at work?
Because when we can count on respectful behaviour, it helps us feel safe, function better and be more engaged with co-workers, patients, residents and families. Treating everyone respectfully creates an environment that helps us deliver better health care.
Respect has long been a core value at PHC, as represented by the “R” in the SISTER values. We aspire to a respect culture, where all of us respect the diversity, dignity and interdependence of all persons.
To raise the bar on how well we live this value, PHC has expanded its services and resources. These services support our focus on a mentally healthy workplace and our ongoing strategy to foster communities where our people thrive.
