So, where are we heading in this lesson?

In this lesson we'll explore the role of treating people fairly in staff engagement and the concept of what 'good work' is. Through the circumstances of four people we'll demonstrate the complexity than can underpin supporting personal engagement and well-being in the workplace.

We'll define eight aspects of how the CIPD defines 'good work' which lies at the heart of staff being treated with fairness and respect. Review and apply these in the context of your work and support for others.

We'll also take you through a series of three scenarios to explore how you would respond to some challenging fairness issues in the workplace. Our subject expert will then share some thoughts and recommendations; see how these confirm or enhance your thinking.

We'll get you to reflect on your own work context and what initiatives in terms of fairness and well-being would benefit you and why that’s the case? 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 post a comment in the community of a positive example in which you have seen fairness or well-being promoted at work and how this has benefitted staff.

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.
