How can my employer create an inclusive work environment?

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a huge issue these days. Along with being unethical, it can also land employers in hot water from a legal perspective. That’s why it’s so important for workplaces to strive to be inclusive, which entails making all workers feel welcomed. Entrepreneur offers the following tips in this case, which can create a better environment overall at one's place of work.

Express positive feedback

Many employees complain that the only feedback they hear is negative. That’s why it’s important for employers to provide ample praise when workers do well, whether they've secured a new client or ensured that a product launch goes off without a hitch. Positive feedback bolsters morale while also making employees feel valued for their contributions.

Be respectful

Differences of opinion are common in life. Even when co-workers disagree, a respectful, civil manner must be maintained. Teamwork is an important aspect of all working relationships, and it can be difficult to collaborate with a person who is disrespectful. A culture of mutual respect will also prevent more serious issues, such as harassment and discrimination.

Communicate effectively

Supervisors must make it a point to communicate with workers effectively. This entails active listening, which ensures that workers’ concerns are heard and accounted for. Management must be careful about dismissing ideas outright, as this will make their employees less likely to come to them with future issues.

Keep your attitude in check

Bad attitudes often develop as a result of daily stress. These bad attitudes can affect the environment at work, especially when they’re shared by supervisors. It’s important for management to keep a positive attitude when possible, which will encourage their employees to do the same.
