Politics in the Workplace

sign reading think before you speak. read before you think.

No one is immune to the firestorm of political controversies sweeping the country this week – opinions surrounding race, patriotism and more, resulting in many water cooler debates.

So, how do you keep peace in the workplace?

• Managers — set the tone by showcasing respect for opposing views.

• Encourage in-person interaction – talking face-to-face can help avoid misinterpretations that arise behind the keyboard.

• Establish a civil culture where everyone understands company policy. Promote rules of engagement for internal non-workplace discussions.

Bottom line: be tactful, stay calm, ask questions and encourage open dialogue. Freedom of speech is the American way!
