Giving Compass’ Take:
• The author provides three key ways that individuals can make their companies better places to work and influence behavior.
• How can human resource departments do a better job of implementing workplace changes to foster inclusivity?
Corporate culture, employee empowerment and workplace wellness are hot topics in business these days. Yet many people — particularly women and minorities — might argue that the shift to less-toxic workplaces isn’t happening fast enough.
Every one of us, from executives to entry-level employees to even consumers, has the power to influence the way business operates. So how do we ignite that power and speed that process?
- As Business Leaders: Provide a Mission. But 73 percent of people consider purpose to be their principal driver at work. When leaders fail to engage employees with a clear mission, they threaten their entire corporate culture — people become unhappy, begin to treat each other with less trust and respect, and become uninspired in their work.
- As Employees: Be Internal Allies. Although they make up the majority of the labor force, women, people of color and members of the LGBT community still face workplace discrimination at disturbing rates.
- As Bystanders: Speak with Your Wallet. Time and money are your voice. If we want to change how the world works and how people are treated, we need to address and manage how we earn and spend our money.
