Elaina Norlin explores a topic we rarely talk about in the workplace…how written and unwritten policies are weaponized to marginalize, penalize and push people out the door.
In some cases, this is a favorable course of action, but in many instances these actions have long-term consequences that erode staff morale, trust and positive engagement.
Here are a small sample of statements she hears from current employees:
• Our workplace culture is “guilty until proven innocent”
• Leadership is actively pushing me out the door and I feel helpless
• As a BIPOC faculty/staff member, I feel more severely penalized for perceived mistakes
• I was blindsided with a negative performance review/reprimand/memo and was not given a chance to defend myself
As workplace organizations, we can do better. This webinar discusses strategies to communicate clear expectations but lead with compassion, empathy and transparency.
