2 As a manager, it is important to be aware of how people perceive the interpersonal treatment they are getting—especially from key representatives of the organization. If people are not being treated with politeness, dignity, and respect, it sends a message that the processes in the organization are more important than the people. Conclusion
Relationships are important. If people don't feel a sense of collegiality, collaboration, or a sense of fairness, they won't engage in the behaviors that organizations want from employees such as a willingness to serve, innovate, and endorse their organization. For most people, a large percentage of their time spent awake is linked to their work. In many ways, the workplace has become the primary community for people. Creating a fulfilling sense of community at work by improving relationships results in a more enjoyable and satisfying experience, which leads to improved and sustained performance.
