An update about NeW Directions Future Workforce Plan: Promoting a respectful and collaborative workplace culture
At the University of Newcastle, we take your wellbeing seriously and we want to provide you with the best possible support so that you - and everyone - can work in a respectful environment that values diversity and inclusiveness.
This is why earlier this year the University refreshed its Promoting a Respectful and Collaborative University: Diversity and Inclusiveness Policy. To further support you and your colleagues, the Promoting a Respectful & Collaborative Workplace: Resolving Workplace Concerns or Conflict Procedure has been developed and is now available in the Policy Library and the following two locations:
- Health and Safety webpage under "Working Safely"
- HR Manager's Toolkit webpage under "Managing Staff".
This change reflects and supports the University's commitment to providing a robust framework to ensure that you, all staff and students, and other members of the University community are not only treated with dignity and respect, but feel empowered to change workplace behaviours that they believe are of concern.
You are encouraged to read the policy and procedure and familiarise yourself with other online tools available in the respectful and collaborative workplace webpage; and you can also access the self-paced online learning program EOonline.
By understanding this procedure - and encouraging your colleagues to do the same - you can actively contribute to the University being a respectful and collaborative place - for everyone."
