Companies that fail to create a “speak up” culture run the risk of talking over the voices they need to be listening to most.
A rising trend of the last few years has seen employees become increasingly vocal about injustices perpetrated by their workplace or employer. Those that have not been able to find a voice through existing channels have grown in confidence and simply created their own — a phenomenon that has significant implications and consequences for business.
Organizations around the world have had ample time to voluntarily create a “speak up culture.” Now they’re been required to do so. This situation begs the question: How can you take an accurate measure of your company’s ethical health if your people won’t talk to you because the barriers to do so are too high?
As this issue of Vault Magazine argues, business leaders need to listen more. Being vocal in support of minorities is all well and good — but a hashtag or a donation won’t cut it.
