Respect is an essential component of a successful workplace. As staff we all have a responsibility to contribute to an environment in which everyone can feel comfortable and valued. One important way in which we do this, is through our wide-range of workplace networks which provide a supportive environment for staff. Having worked for the Senedd since 2008, my experience is that whatever your background, position or department your views are encouraged and welcomed. I truly feel valued and part of one big team.
