The Respectful Workplace Program (RWP) is a service offered through the Employee Assistance and Respectful Workplace Division (EARWP) of the Public Service Commission (PSC). Employees can access confidential support and guidance on how to constructively respond to situations of conflict and/or to explore avenues of resolution.
It is the belief of RWP that conflict is a natural consequence when people work together and it can often be a healthy process that helps work groups to problem solve and reach a consensus. When conflicts do not get resolved, however, it can contribute to situations which are negative and stressful for everyone involved.
RWP was developed to provide individual employees, employees and co-workers, managers at all levels, work teams and departments with healthy options to address workplace conflict, through support, coaching and resolution options.
