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. One form of communication: gossip, is a killer of workplace culture. The way managers and employees respond to gossip either safeguards or erodes workplace culture.

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.

Contributed by Chris Powell, CEO of Talmetrix, and HR West 2018 Speaker


You can’t manage employee engagement unless you understand what drives engagement — it’s that simple. Recently I talked with David Youssefnia, Ph.D., about the definition of engagement. He’s president and founder of Critical Metrics, and one of Talmetrix’s advisers. He had some tips on how to understand the drivers of engagement to build a better employee engagement strategy.

Contributed by Rob Catalano, Co Founder, WorkTango and HR West 2018 Speaker

In 2015, a Gallup poll revealed that 50.8% of US employees were “not engaged,” while 17.2% were “actively disengaged.” This is a scary thought for the future of our companies. If you think about it, we’re constantly striving for greater customer satisfaction and product improvement, so why aren’t we giving the same vital attention to our strongest asset—our employees?

Today we’re going to talk about the evolution of employee voice in helping support our ever changing needs to listen to and understand our employees to better engage them.

WHY IS EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT IMPORTANT?
