HR 6.0 - Workplace Civility and Respect :

Edmonds Community College is committed to a culture of civility and will establish procedures to facilitate a culture of respect.

Maintaining a culture of respect and civility in the workplace is key to a successful work and classroom environment. A culture of civility and respect improves morale and fosters productivity and enhances learning.

On the other hand, disrespect can become a barrier to effective communication, coaching, and productivity and manifests itself in both verbal and non-verbal abuse. In more severe cases, it may result in employee turnover, student withdrawals, reduced morale, diminished loyalty, and physiological impacts such as headaches, depression, and increased absenteeism. 

College members will treat all members of the community with honesty, respect and courtesy; each individual shall have regard for the dignity and needs of the people with whom they work and supervise. This applies to all interpersonal interactions, written and verbal communications and in cyberspace and social media networks. The College is committed to expecting respectful and civil behavior from all employees at work and in the classroom; we require each employee to support this commitment. 

Managers and supervisors are responsible for ensuring the workplace and classroom are free of disrespectful behavior, abusive treatment, and harassment within their respective work areas.
