Addressing Workplace Gossip Without Getting Sucked-In!

Addressing Workplace Gossip Without Getting Sucked-In!

Contributed by Lorie Reichel Howe, Founder, Conversations in the Workplace

I’ve heard it said that the way employees communicate either makes or breaks an organization. Spoken words are powerful containing the ability to help or harm others.

What is workplace gossip?

In a nutshell, gossip is communicating negatively to a coworker about another coworker. When Alex says something negative about Addison behind her back that he would never say to her face, that’s gossip. While many attempt to sugarcoat gossip disguising it as a concern: “Oh, I’m so concerned about Addison, did you know that he/she…”

Don’t get sucked in.

You may have heard the phrase that “feedback is a gift” and wondered if you could exchange it like an unwanted pair of socks. Many of us would say that you can keep your feedback “gift,” thank you very much.

But I hope to show you that through thoughtful conversations with your employees, delivering feedback can actually be the gift that keeps on giving. Mastering the art of giving (and receiving) feedback can lead to richer employee conversations, which in turn lead to stronger manager-employee relationships.

By Angela Hood Founder/CEO, ThisWay Global, Presenter at the 2018 Talent Acquisition Conference

What is the real impact of GDPR on recruiting?

Posted By Laurie A. Pehar Borsh, Friday, May 25, 2018

By Jerome Ternynck – Founder & CEO of SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company
Presenter, “Measuring the Return on Hiring Success” – NCHRA Talent Acquisition Conference, June 7, 2018.
