So, where are we heading in this lesson?

To create a foundation for the following lessons in the course, we'll explore some key principles that underpin valuing people through some workplace scenarios. These include building a sense of team spirit and communicating the purpose of work to motivate and inspire people, enabling people to have a meaningful voice, treating people fairly and demonstrating humanity and compassion in work and enabling others to develop and support their teams' development.

We'll get you to reflect on which of these areas you most feel you need to progress in. Remember to make notes in your interactive workbook.

We also encourage you to take part in the community forum which provides the collaborative space to share your thinking and ideas with others. In this lesson we’ll ask you to share your thoughts in the forum on how much you feel that organisations value people that work for them and whether this is improving, or not. Also, what pressures organisations face which might make it difficult for them to make progress in valuing people?

Review what others have posted to gain wider understanding on the theme from people professionals working in different contexts. Support the learning community by reading the contributions of others, 'liking' those you find helpful and add your unique reflections to the conversation.
