Dignity & Respect at UPMC

UPMC Content 3

At UPMC, inclusion begins with a core belief that everyone deserves dignity and respect.

In 2008, the UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion introduced the Dignity & Respect initiative to create a more inclusive workplace culture. As communities and organizations outside of UPMC have learned about what we are doing here, Dignity & Respect has grown from an internal initiative to a National Campaign.*

An Integration of Dignity & Respect

For UPMC, dignity and respect are more than just a campaign. They are guiding principles that help UPMC become a better employer and provider of services.

We have integrated dignity and respect into the following areas:

30 Tips to Dignity & Respect

The 30 tips are the result of employee focus groups. Employees were asked to describe behaviors that exist where employees are treated with dignity and respect.

In response to the feedback, we’ve created 30 Tips of Dignity & Respect which we encourage you to practice each and every day.

7 Pillars of Dignity & Respect Learning Series

The 7 Pillars learning series is an introduction to behaviors that help organizations create an environment of dignity, respect, and engagement for their employees and customers, and the communities they serve. The purpose of the modules, available as instructor-led and web-based training, is to explain why, when, and how the Pillar behaviors can be used to drive change in culture in organizations.

Dignity & Respect in Action

Tip 27 - Become a Mentor. You - yes YOU - can help others realize their potential.

In support of Dignity & Respect Tip 27, Become a Mentor is an e-mentoring program for UPMC employees designed to provide peers, including supervisors, with an opportunity to further champion our culture and values by growing and engaging each other.

Tip 29 - Lend a Hand. A little help can go a long way.

We recognize the lasting impact we can make by serving our communities. Our employee volunteerism initiative, Lend A Hand, engages employees interested in donating time in the community, spending a few hours discussing health careers with students, and donating items to organizations in need.
