Staff at Richmond Hospital showing their support for Pink Shirt Day.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the campaign on February 27 – we had a great turnout at our 20 Pink Shirt Day sites across Vancouver Coastal Health!
Staff showed their support for a respectful and caring work environment by wearing pink, sharing your photos, visiting our booths, and taking some time to share their ideas on how to show respect, compassion and appreciation in the workplace.
“Pink Shirt Day is so significant because it raises awareness of the importance of respect in our everyday interactions and how we show up," says Noelle Mori, Human Resources Manager, Respectful Workplace Program. “We need to truly value each other and understand that we are all unique individuals with different perspectives and contributions. In doing this, we create a caring work environment where discrimination and bullying are not tolerated."
We all share a responsibility in creating a respectful workplace and to treat everyone at work with consideration. Caring is a key part of our culture, and when we live our values, we can create a more positive and supportive environment.
Here are some of the great ideas staff shared with us - little things that mean a lot to show colleagues respect, compassion and appreciation. Take the opportunity to try out some of these suggestions and see how they make you, and those around you, feel!
We appreciate your participation in this year's Pink Shirt Day campaign and we hope to continue supporting and promoting a respectful and caring environment, not just on Pink Shirt Day, but every day.
