In 2012, a review of Yukon’s existing Workplace Harrassment
Prevention and Resolution Policy revealed disappointing results. Existing processes,
investigations and resolutions weren’t doing enough to prevent harm to
government employees. After a period of consultation, the Yukon Government shifted
its approach and created the Respectful Workplace Policy, which relies on
alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. By providing appropriate
dispute resolution processes to address conflict and disrespectul conduct among
government employees, the Policy underscored a basic concept: that all
government employees, whever their role, have a responsibility to make sure
that every employee with whom they interact receives the respect they deserve.
Qatalyst, under the GGI brand, conducted a thorough
review of the Respectful Workplace Policy and the activities taken in support
of it by Yukon’s Respectful Workplace Office. We looked at issues related to
need, achieved results, design and delivery of activities, and resources.
