Discussing Politics at Work

Episode 1.42: Not long from now, the US will face one of the most divisive presidential elections in its history, and despite the fact that many Americans are now working from home, toxic behavior involving campaign rhetoric can still make its way into your workspaces, deeply impacting your team’s current and future harmony and productivity.

• Recent study statistics regarding political conversations in the workplace;

• What's at stake for companies;

“This will not all just disappear on November 4th. Politics are going to continue to impact every people's everyday lives. I think there's an opportunity here to use this time to think about how do we, as an organization, like to handle these issues - and I think it'll pay off, not only through the election, but after."
