This study looks into how men and women perceive professional relationships based on respect for one another. The study generated responses from 113 employees belonging to the private and public organizations in India. The main statistical tools used for the survey are multiple dichotomy analysis and the interclass correlation coefficient. The study revealed that the perspective of men on the subject of respect in the workplace differs from that of women. Thus, where men primarily associate respect with recognition, women, on the other hand, associate respect with fairness in terms of equal access to opportunities at the workplace. The policy implications of this study draw a parity line for men and women at the workplace to appreciate each other, as such relations purport to be indices for the growth and development of organizations. In view of this, elements that promote respect among the organizational workforce should be prioritized when formulating company policies.
