Respect in the Workplace On-Line Training Programs

Governor Hassan’s Respect in the Workplace initiative is aimed at promoting a respectful and civil work environment for the benefit of all employees, and the citizens we serve. The initiative includes a series of workshops and an online program. All state employees are required to view the on-line seminar which underscores our shared values of pride, professionalism and excellence in public service, and offers a series of tools to reinforce those values in our daily work. Two programs are posted below. One is for all employees and one is specifically designed for managers and supervisors. Please select the program appropriate to your job role; after viewing the program print and sign your certificate and submit it to your agency’s Human Resources office.
