In today's diverse workplace is a reflection of North American society at large. Often we see a wide range of behaviours that display a lack of respect and politeness, both inside and outside the workplace. Various polls and studies have highlighted that workers view impoliteness as a serious issue which must be dealt with. As the workforce becomes even more diverse than it is now, it is important that each employee develops an awareness of respectful behaviour and necessary skills. When this happens, it is then anticipated that employees could serve as role models. Hopefully, these behaviours will spread in the workplace and create cultural harmony.
