Since 2020, workers have seen a huge uptake in diversity initiatives in their organisations, predominantly due to the rise in activism in society on important issues. This sounds great and reactive, but how effective and purposeful are these new and evolving people strategies really?
And for many in HR, it can be hard navigating the difficult and sensitive conversations that are either being had in the workplace or need to be addressed. How do you manage employee conflict when there are differing opinions on topics whilst ensuring the safety and support is given to all?
Our CEO and Co-Founder Gemma McCall and Product Marketing Manager Kenya Peters hosted this webinar on how employee activism can influence HR and People strategies. They talked about how senior leaders can manage the growing influence activism outside of work has on the workplace, provided good and bad examples of how companies should react to what’s going on, and ways to make sure all employees feel safe and supported, especially those from marginalised groups who are perhaps more likely to be impacted by the issues happening.
