Dignity in Care initiative This is a campaign to stop lack of respect show to service users and to ensure that their dignity is maintained through good and positive service. It encourages challenging of poor service or lack of respect.
When we discriminate, disrespect, gossip, bully and intimidate can be viewed as being uncivil. Our behavior can threaten positive relations with our co-workers and an unhealthy workplace. We all must take action for our behavior and practice civility. Civility creates a healthy and productive workplace if everyone fosters positive relations, treat everyone with respect and kindness, and promote civility in the workplace.
I have heard my grandpa say “times have changed” about a hundred times, but I normally just let it go in one ear and out the other. Last Saturday when he told me “times have changed” really caught my attention. That phrase made me realize for the first time that my generation has become self-centered. Self-centered is a person who only thinks about themselves, their own need and their own interest. Self-centered people do not do anything people tell them to do, and they think everything is about them. These types of people act like the world owes them something. However, today’s generation tends to be more self-centered than earlier generations.
" Courtesy is the responsibility of every employee. Everyone is expected to be courteous, polite and friendly to our customers, vendors and suppliers, as well as to their fellow employees. No one should be disrespectful or use profanity or any other language which injures the image or reputation of the Dealership."

It is also known that internet usage on cell/smart phones is a growing problem in the work force. Businesses are reporting that productivity and quality customer service is declining as a result of smartphone use. Cell phones in the workplace will cause disruptions such as talking loudly as well as loud ringtones, interrupting meetings, inappropriate, personal conversations, internet use, and gaming. According to a survey conducted on 145 out of 260 Chesapeake Fire Department employees, 56% claimed “Cell phones frequently interrupt training, meetings, and face-to-face conversations, which most consider rude and inconsiderate,” (How does the use of cell phones impact the Chesapeake Fire Department?, Long, n.d.).

Have you ever been in a situation where you wondered why people are so rude and why does it seem like being rude is accepted? I encounter a rude person at least 1-2 times a day. Growing up with a family that teaches respect, I would’ve thought that everyone was the same, but as I got older I realized most of these people were not raised with knowing how to respect people. I agree that rudeness is on the rise. More importantly because of what I grew up knowing and what I saw is a big difference to how it is now without generation.
Civility in the workplace is a mirror of the behavior exhibited in society as a whole. Civility is defined as behavior wherein the respect that is shown toward another person, makes that person feel valued, a beneficiary of mutual respect, effective communication,
Rudeness is definitely on the rise. A person cannot go a single day without experiencing some type of rudeness in their daily life. In my Interpersonal Communications class, we discussed how a person’s response and their tone will foreshadow how the conversation will be guided. Sometimes, you are not the one at fault if the conversation becomes misguided, rather it is the person with whom you are talking to. Being a cashier at Kmart, I am subject to all kinds of emotions: happiness, anger, sadness, and much more. My first response is to maintain a positive attitude because I know I am not the one who did anything wrong. If something does not ring up correctly (or the price they were expecting), a customer’s initial reaction is to blame the
I agree that Americans are becoming ruder in the workplace because most of them are performing in fast-paced, cross-functional, and diversified organizations. Consequently they have unmet needs, they are stressed, they are angry, and they are willing to express it (Johnson, P & Indvik, 2001, p.705). In addition to their internal stresses, they are interacting with people with different viewpoints, values, and goals. For the most part, people tend to have little respect for those who do not agree with their principles. Although there are a number of documented reasons for negative behavior, your discussion highlighted anger as being one the most significant reason. Most people do not use violence or open conflicts as ways to express anger;

In Pedigree, Lauren A. Rivera outlines the manner by which the elite are able to reproduce their resources and monopolize access to the most prestigious and highest paying jobs in the United States. Rivera’s main argument is that methods by which employers of elite firms characterize credentials and evaluate qualification for top jobs provides more opportunities for candidates who come from socioeconomically advantaged backgrounds, while at the same time limiting opportunities for less privileged applicants. She goes on to highlight how every stage of the evaluative process, from initial submission of résumés for evaluation to final selections made by committees, is systematically correlated with parental income and education. This exclusion of talented, qualified applicants from less-advantaged socioeconomic backgrounds creates a cap for students in terms of the prestige of jobs and income levels that they can attain. In the chapter summaries below, I will outline Rivera’s arguments regarding elite reproduction—and the methodology by which this process occurs at each phase of the hiring process.
According to The Positivity Solution, an organization dedicated to spread positivity, dignity, and kindness, “Rudeness is often a by-product of a lack of respect. Not to sound like Captain Obvious here, but most people don’t choose to be rude and disrespectful to people who they respect, do they?”. What they are trying to convey is that people often don’t give everyone the respect they deserve. When we do not give people respect, we lose respect for ourselves and become rude in other people’s eyes. As we learn to realize that everyone deserves respect, we can see that even the most small things can earn our attention. If you are consciously deciding to give people respect or not, that is a mistake. Why do people need your acceptance to be treated equally? They do not. And if you are making a choice based on shallow judgment, you are destroying the love and kindness that others have shown to you. To be critical like that is unacceptable and wrong universally.
The truth is that, these traits are becoming rare in careers. Having respect and the right attitude at work wil help a person to develop not only at work but in life as well.
