No matter the experience, education, skill, personality, or contribution to an organization, every human should have basic rights. Every worker should have a right to feel:

  1. A sense of belonging. Workers should have a right to feel like we are included in an organization and part of a team.
  2. Valued. Workers should have a right to feel like our contributions have worth and importance.
  3. Respected. Workers should have a right to dignity and have our human needs and individual strengths and weaknesses honored.
  4. Healthy. Workers should have a right to feel strong. We should have a right to work in environments that promote well-being.
  5. Accomplished. Workers should have a right to information and resources necessary to do our jobs well so we can feel productive.
  6. Supported. Workers should have a right to feel heard and receive appropriate responses when we voice concerns.
  7. Fairly treated. Workers should have a right to reasonable expectations and similar standards for our colleagues.
  8. Empowered. Workers should have a right to have power and control over our work for confidence and strength.
  9. Part of a greater purpose. Workers should have a right to play a meaningful role in the reason our organizations exists.

So we keep going.

The time is now for healthy and productive employees.

    I had everyone of those expected rights at my job. Them something happened, I lost them all………after my boss said I had a target on my back. A different boss said I was a troublemaker. Yet another said you are really starting to annoy me if you haven’t noticed! I could go on and on…………
